The people who bring you TV news - sometimes they cross a line or otherwise find themselves embroiled in scandal. Here are a few examples over just the past few years.
The longtime Democratic pol exited CNN after network bosses said she was too close to the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.
The Fox News correspondent took time off after details of an extramarital affair came out.
The MSNBC host exited after an ugly spat with bosses over pre-emptions of her show and her claims of racial bias.
The NBC News anchor lost his job after reports surfaced that he exaggerated the risks he faced covering the Iraq War. He later resurfaced on MSNBC.
The CNN anchor was dropped after he made disparaging remarks in a radio interview about Jon Stewart and his network bosses.
ABC News' chief anchor apologized to viewers after it was revealed he had failed to disclose his donations to the Clinton Foundation.
The CNN commentator stormed off the set after an argument with James Carville. Novak (who died in 2009) later apologized.
In the Rathergate scandal, the CBS newsman presented documents about George W. Bush's military service that, it was later revealed, the network had failed to authenticate. Rather apologized to viewers and later left the network.
The Fox News host was fired and later filed suit against her boss, Roger Ailes, claiming he sexually harassed her.
