The who, what, when, where and why of the decisions regarding Stuart Taylor and Doris Kearns Goodwin. Did the NewsHour warn Stuart Taylor? Is this because he is conservative? Is Doris Kearns Goodwin leaving? Will Stuart Taylor return to the NewsHour? Did the White House pressure the NewsHour on the Stuart Taylor issue? A question from Joan Pierce of Walnut Creek, CA: I was unsure from your written comments whether Doris Kearns Goodwin was asked to leave or not.
Les Crystal, executive producer of the NewsHour, responds:
Ms. Goodwin understood she could not continue as a regular contributor if the political ads stayed on the air or she participated in partisan political activity.
