CBS News Sends Greenfield to Greenpasture

"Classic" logo of CBS News, from the...Image via WikipediaMediabistro.com's TV Newser blog reports that CBS News has not renewed the contract of long-time political correspondent Jeff Greenfield.

Greenfield has been the network's senior political correspondent since re-joining CBS News in 2007. He was a political analyst with CNN from 1998-2007, a media analyst for ABC News from 1983-1997, and in an earlier stint with CBS, was a media correspondent from 1979-1983.

The 67-year-old New York native and Yale Law School grad told TV Newser that he plans to continue writing novels and may continue to turn up in other media platforms. He is the author of several books, including Then Everything Changed, The People's Choice and Oh Waiter, Another Order of Crow!: Inside the Strangest Presidential Election Finish in American History.

Greenfield being shown the door comes on the heels of reports that CBS News is allowing Katie Couric to walk away from the CBS Evening News anchor desk (see "TUOL" post 4/4/11).
