CBS News president David Rhodes' future reportedly "hangs in the balance"
Rhodes' four-year deal as president of the CBS News division, which has been wracked by sexual misconduct scandals, expires at the end of February. CBS Evening News under anchor Jeff Glor, Face the Nation and CBS This Morning have also been losing viewers over the past year. The Daily Beast asks: "Could he end up being deposed?" A longtime CBS News veteran responds: “If you’re to believe the internal rumor mills, that’s very real."
