Leave of absenceとは

 
TOEIC学習者ならleaveという英単語が「休暇」という意味の名詞として使われることはおなじみですね。CBSの60ミニッツのララローガンが番組を休むことになるようです。

CBS News' Lara Logan Taking Leave Of Absence Over Discredited '60 Minutes' Benghazi Report
Posted: 11/26/2013 1:48 pm EST | Updated: 11/26/2013 3:06 pm EST

NEW YORK -- Jeff Fager, chairman of CBS News and executive producer of '"60 Minutes," informed staff Tuesday that Lara Logan and her producer, Max McClellan, would be taking a leave of absence following an internal report on the news magazine's discredited Oct. 27 Benghazi report.

“As Executive Producer, I am responsible for what gets on the air,” Fager wrote in a memo obtained by The Huffington Post. “I pride myself in catching almost everything, but this deception got through and it shouldn’t have.”

Lara Logan No Longer Hosting CPJ Dinner
Posted: 11/26/2013 12:22 pm EST | Updated: 11/26/2013 3:14 pm EST

NEW YORK -- CBS News correspondent Lara Logan will no longer be hosting the annual press freedom awards dinner hosted by the Committee to Protect Journalists on Tuesday night, as she had long been scheduled to do.

Logan's appearance would have been notable given that she remains embroiled in a controversy over last month’s discredited “60 Minutes” report on the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. Logan has not spoken publicly about the report since apologizing for it on air. Joseph Burkett, Logan's husband, ushered a Newsweek reporter out of their house last week.

By now most of you have received the report from Al Ortiz about the problems with the 60 Minutes story on Benghazi.

There is a lot to learn from this mistake for the entire organization. We have rebuilt CBS News in a way that has dramatically improved our reporting abilities. Ironically 60 Minutes, which has been a model for those changes, fell short by broadcasting a now discredited account of an important story, and did not take full advantage of the reporting abilities of CBS News that might have prevented it from happening.

As a result, I have asked Lara Logan, who has distinguished herself and has put herself in harm’s way many times in the course of covering stories for us, to take a leave of absence, which she has agreed to do. I have asked the same of producer Max McClellan, who also has a distinguished career at CBS News.

As Executive Producer, I am responsible for what gets on the air. I pride myself in catching almost everything, but this deception got through and it shouldn’t have.

When faced with a such an error, we must use it as an opportunity to make our broadcast even stronger. We are making adjustments at 60 Minutes to reduce the chances of it happening again.

There is a lot of pride at CBS News. Every broadcast is working hard to live up to the high standard set at CBS News for excellence in reporting. This was a regrettable mistake. But there are many fine professionals at 60 Minutes who produce some of the very best of broadcast journalism, covering the important and interesting stories of our times, and they will continue to do so each and every Sunday.

以下の部分がleave of absenceに触れているところですが、簡単に背景説明をしてからleave of absenceを命じたことを伝えています。やはりこういうデリケートな問題はまず背景説明や理由を話してからするようですね。

ダンラザーの時はCBSを辞めることになりましたが、ララローガンはどうなるのでしょうか。
