According to Ellisblog, the internecine war at CBS has already begun and it isn’t pretty. John Ellis pulled the following from the AP wire:

(Kerry “Message Maven” Joel) Lockhart said (Rather producer) Mapes asked him the weekend before the story broke to call Burkett. “She basically said there’s a guy who is being helpful on the story who wants to talk to you,” Lockhart said, adding that it was common knowledge that CBS was working on a story raising questions about Bush’s Guard service. Mapes told him there were some records “that might move the story forward. She didn’t tell me what they said.”
