This is perhaps the definitive insider's account of the decline of the once-vaunted CBS News division (due to shrinking viewership, bloated egos run amok, budget problems and internecine squabbling). Ed Joyce spent almost 30 years at CBS, attaining the position of president of network news in 1983. Two years later, he was fired and out of work. Hence this book, written with candor but out of bad feeling and a sense of betrayal. The black hats are numerous--the duplicitous and vain Dan Rather (colder and more calculating in real life than Jack Nicholson's wicked portrayal of a news anchor in "Broadcast News")

No longer the most-watched network, CBS remains the most written about. If only it could convert the slew of books about it into ratings points. The long list swells with the addition of Peter J. Boyer's "Who Killed CBS?" and "Prime Times, Bad Times" by former CBS News President Ed Joyce. Still more CBS books are on the horizon. And then what, kiss and tell from the CBS mail room?

GROVELAND, Calif. -- Dramatic images are emerging on social media -- some taken by local residents -- showing the size and destructive power of the Rim fire as it burns in and around Yosemite National Park. The fire has burned more than 125,000 acres, destroyed nine structures and is threatening the power supply of San Francisco. Officials say 4,500 additional structures remain in its path. Residents say they were stunned by the fire's power. "I've been up here 11 years," said Shirley Sarno, owner of the Gunn House Hotel in Sonora.

Paraclete COACH: Jim Nottoli, 1st season LAST SEASON: 2-8; 6th in league, 0-5 PLAYERS TO WATCH: Nottoli has his work cut out for him as he inherits a team that finished last in league play and posted overall records of 2-8 in each of the past three seasons. A lack of stability over the past four seasons also has hurt the Spirits, says Nottoli, the fourth coach in as many years.

Citing personal and professional reasons, Phyllis George resigned Friday as co-anchor of the troubled "CBS Morning News," which she joined only last January amid much criticism of her hiring. Two relatively unknown newcomers, Forrest Sawyer, a former Atlanta television anchorman, and Maria Shriver, a niece of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.), were named as the new co-anchors, effective immediately.

Michael Gartner vividly recalls when, in 1989, as president of NBC News, he sat down for a meeting with Alfred Geller, the agent renegotiating Connie Chung's contract. "Geller plopped down and put his feet on the table," Gartner says. "He had a few buttons of his shirt open with his rather large stomach sticking out. He proceeded to tell me he wanted $3 million a year for Connie, her own prime-time show, she got to pick the producer and . . . he wanted a quick answer.

Ida Z. Williams, a longtime Newport Beach resident and environmentalist who fought to preserve coastal areas, died Monday at her home. She was 70. For about 12 years, Mrs. Williams was a member of Stop Polluting Newport, or SPON, a group that cleaned up areas of Newport Beach and fought commercial development. Other activists and family members said Mrs. Williams dedicated much of her later life to lobbying government officials in an attempt to halt development and pollution.

Fans of Phyllis George can rest easy. When anchorman Bill Kurtis leaves the "CBS Morning News"--as confirmed late last week for TV critics gathered here--the broadcast will become more, not less, Georgesque. So said CBS News president Ed Joyce, who reaffirmed what he had told representatives of the network affiliate stations two weeks ago: The "Morning News," with George as co-anchor, is softening.

There were times this week when it seemed like the highest-paid broadcast journalists in the world were nothing but glorified weathermen covering the cold snap in Geneva. All the big TV news names have been in Geneva for the Shultz-Gromyko arms talks--or rather, the prelude to what may become arms talks.
