Of baseball and CBS News

It was interesting watching Bud Selig proclaim the new Major League Baseball policy against performance-enhancing drugs. I couldn’t shake thoughts of CBS News and their current conundrum over RatherGate.

CBS talks of restoring credibility.

Baseball talks of restoring integrity.

Those are two very different words, and I think CBS ought to take a close look at baseball’s term. Integrity assumes responsibility, while credibility involves the perception of others. Integrity is something you can do something about. Credibility is in the hands of others and over which you have no power. To speak of credibility when integrity is the real issue is to pass the buck.
