60 Minutes executive producer Jeff Fager steps down after 36 years with CBS



The tenure of Jeff Fager as the executive producer of 60 Minutes is over. "Jeff Fager is leaving the company effective immediately. This action today is not directly related to the allegations surfaced in press reports,".

Jeff Fager statement: “The company’s decision had nothing to do with the false allegations printed in The New Yorker. Instead, they terminated my contract early because I sent a text message to one of our own CBS reporters demanding that she be fair in covering the story. My language was harsh and, despite the fact that journalists receive harsh demands for fairness all the time, CBS did not like it. One such note should not result in termination after 36 years, but it did.”
