It’s a case of war and piece at CBS.
After Page Six reported that there was a brouhaha over “CBS This Morning” failing to get a Bob Woodward book exclusive this week, we’re told that the same problem has been the source of intrigue and envy at the network “for years.”
Insiders were irked that Woodward did his first interview about blockbuster book “Rage” with rival morning show “Today” — even though it was published by CBS sister company Simon & Schuster, which are both owned by Viacom.
Now sources tell us that in recent years there have also been battles over Hillary Clinton’s 2017 election autopsy, “What Happened,” and Woodward’s previous scorcher, 2018’s “Fear” — both of which saw big live interviews go to rival networks, usually after a taped spot aired on CBS. Even Michelle Obama — whose memoir “Becoming” was a publishing phenomenon — sat down with ABC’s Robin Roberts before CBS’s Gayle King.
One exasperated insider said, “Management can’t get the [CBS] shows to all work together to use their collective leverage to help the morning show be more competitive.”
They lamented that “NBC would never let this happen, or ABC.” They added that on a memorable recent occasion, “CBS Sunday Morning” bagged the Clinton exclusive — then wouldn’t cough up footage for “CBS This Morning,” fearing it would diminish their exclusive.
“[It] became a big internal battle,” the insider said.
Meanwhile, an insider argued that it’s not an apples-to-apples comparison: ABC doesn’t have a rival to “60 Minutes,” and CBS News has become “even more collaborative” since new management took over in early 2019 and overhauled that division.
A rep for CBS said: “CBS News books top authors all the time and every show benefits from that win.”

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today
Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.
Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
