According to this piece, CBS news head Andrew Heyward feels "a certain sorrow and guilt about being the guy who survived," a source reports.

Well, then, why doesn't he offer his resignation? Tom Johnson, former President and CEO of CNN and a person of honor (BTW also a personal friend), did just that in the wake of the flawed "Operation Tailwind" report on CNN, even though he was not personally involved in the reporting of the story. His resignation was not accepted -- in a wise move on CNN's part.

If Heyward's "sorrow and guilt" persists, perhaps he could purge himself by acting honorably . . . but then again, perhaps he's afraid that his offer to resign would be met with a ready assent.
