    When Jeff Hall, a rising star in the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement, was murdered last spring by his own 10-year-old son, it seemed easy to blame the boy's exposure to violent rhetoric and guns. But, as correspondent Lesley Stahl reports, the truth is far more complicated. "60 Minutes" investigates the case and the growing strength of hate groups nationwide. The following script is from "The murder of an American Nazi" which aired on Sept. 25, 2011. Earlier this year, the leader of a neo-Nazi group was murdered in Riverside, California. His name was Jeff Hall. He was a burly man,...

    They still haven't found a line they won't cross. The latest taboo busted wide open by "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone is religion. It's a comedic assault on religious dogma called "The Book of Mormon" and it's currently the hottest show on Broadway. Steve Kroft talks to the pair about that musical comedy and brings "60 Minutes" cameras to observe the creative process that's kept the foul-mouthed school boys of "South Park" at the top of the basic cable television heap for years.

    60 Minutes aired the interview Steve Kroft conducted with President Obama on Wednesday at the White House in which the Commander-in-Chief discussed the successful mission to kill Osama bin Laden. "I felt very strongly there was a strategic imperative to go after him," the President said even though he admitted they had no photograph and no direct evidence of bin Laden's presence. The President also said he was "about as active as any project that I've been involved with since I've been President... I was not involved with designing the initial plan but each iteration they'd bring to me, make...

    Obama: No sleep lost over bin Laden killing By Michael O'Brien - 05/08/11 07:15 PM ET President Obama said he didn't lose any sleep over Osama bin Laden's killing. The president said he had no hesitation over ordering bin Laden's death, though he admitted to nervousness about sending U.S. special forces troops into Pakistan or the dangerous -- but ultimately successful -- mission. "As nervous as I was about this whole process, the one thing I didn't lose sleep over was the possibility of taking bin Laden out. Justice was done," Obama said Sunday on "60 Minutes" on CBS. "And...
  • Cult of 'Three Cups of Tea' Should Have Known Better

    04/24/2011 5:26:28 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 25 replies ^ | April 24, 2011 | Debra J. Saunders
    The first tip-off that Greg Mortenson's memoir "Three Cups of Tea" has some credibility issues comes in the book's introduction. Co-author David Oliver Relin writes that as Mortenson is flying over Pakistan, the helicopter pilot marvels to Mortenson, "I've been flying in northern Pakistan for 40 years. How is it you know the terrain better than me?" The pilot also confides, "Flying with President Musharraf, I've become acquainted with many world leaders, many outstanding gentlemen and ladies. But I think Greg Mortenson is the most remarkable person I've ever met." People don't talk like that. Books don't lead with that...
  • Couric’s Rocky Path to a Likely Parting With CBS (Dinosaur Media DeathWatch™)

    The New York Times ^ | April 11, 2011 | Bill Carter
    For Katie Couric, the offer in 2006 to become the anchor of “CBS Evening News” came with another incentive, one she prized almost as highly, according to two of her friends: the chance to report for “60 Minutes,” the newsmagazine that for Ms. Couric stood for the kind of serious journalism she had always aspired to. Regular appearances on “60 Minutes” were written into her $15 million-a-year contract with CBS, but once she arrived at the network, she found a chilly reception from some of the staff members at the venerable program. Some of Ms. Couric’s associates said that the...

    Boehner: Obama disrespectful to me By: Jake Sherman December 12, 2010 05:30 PM EST John Boehner thinks President Barack Obama is engaging, smart and brilliant but also remains smarted by the president accusing him of taking taxpayers hostage to secure a tax break for the rich. In an interview with Leslie Stahl of “60 Minutes” for broadcast Sunday night on CBS, Boehner said Obama showed him “disrespect” by calling him a hostage-taker. “Excuse me, Mr. President I thought the election was over,” Boehner said, according to a transcript obtained by POLITICO. “You know, you get a lot of that heated...

    Ben Bernanke may or may not succeed in saving the economy, but at least he has the courage to try — and the honesty to tell the truth. The same cannot be said of our elected officials. Congress is buried under a crushing surplus of cynicism, while the White House seems paralyzed by a deficit of courage. An expert on the Great Depression, Bernanke is determined not to be the Federal Reserve chairman who allows the nation to plummet into Great Depression II. Since our political leaders can't be bothered to do what urgently needs to be done — stimulate...

    Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told CBS in an interview to be aired Sunday that he’s not ruling out purchasing more bonds to aid the U.S. economy, the network said in a release Friday. In an interview taped Tuesday in Columbus, Ohio, Bernanke defended the central bank’s program to buy $600 billion in U.S. Treasury notes, which was attacked by senior politicians in the U.S. and abroad. Top Republicans charge the bond purchases, due to end in June, could bring high inflation and may weaken the U.S. dollar excessively.

    Q: The major banks are racking up profits in the billions. Wall Street bonuses are climbing back up to where they were. And yet, lending to small businesses actually declined in the third quarter. Why is that? A: A lot of small businesses are not seeking credit, because, you know, because their business is not doing well, because the economy is slow. Others are not qualifying for credit, maybe because the value of their property has gone down. But some also can’t meet the terms and conditions that banks are setting. Q: Is this a case of banks that were...

    Anderson Cooper and Lady Gaga don't seem to have much in common, but CNN's silver fox reveals he and the outrageous pop star recently got up close and personal, and all it took was a little Irish whiskey. Cooper, who interviewed the singer for an upcoming segment for "60 Minutes," says Gaga got him so liquored up on one of their meetings that he actually struggled to do his job."I was really interested to meet Lady Gaga. She's obviously a fascinating person," he told The Insider. "We actually ended up [one] day in a pub in London drinking Jameson, which...

    In a report sure to cause consternation at the White House and in the offices of the Democratic Leadership in Congress, “60 Minutes” provided an in-depth report on the realities of the unemployment situation in America today. When you take into account the underemployed as well as the unemployed, the national rate hits 17% and California a staggering 22%. To put a face on the realities of the underemployed in America under Obamanomincs, reporter Scott Pelley spoke with a fiber-optics engineering manager who has been looking for work for over a year. He just took a job working at a...

    "60 Minutes": The Real Unemployment Rate Is 17% CBS: "The national unemployment rate of 9.5% percent sounds incredibly high and of course, it is. But, it doesn't nearly capture the depth of the trouble. It doesn't count the people who've seen their hours cut to part-time, it doesn't count the people who've quit looking for work. If you add all of that together, the unemployed and the underemployed, it's not 9.5% percent, it's 17% and here in California it's 22%."

    Could Scott Pelley possibly be this naive, or was he willingly playing the role of MSM cheerleader for the developer of the Ground Zero Mosque? In the course of a chummy interview of GZM developer Sharif El-Gamal aired on Sunday's 60 Minutes, Pelley produced a pearl. Instead of asking a probing question, the CBS "reporter" served as an advocate for El-Gamal's position when it came to the siting of the mosque. Pelley, on his own initiative, asserted: "You don't have your choice of putting this anywhere you want to. There aren't many spots." View video here.

    (CBS) This story was originally published on Nov. 22, 2009. It was updated on Aug. 6, 2010. Every medical study ever conducted has concluded that 100 percent of all Americans will eventually die. This comes as no great surprise, but the amount of money being spent at the very end of people's lives probably will. Last year, Medicare paid $55 billion just for doctor and hospital bills during the last two months of patients' lives. That's more than the budget for the Department of Homeland Security, or the Department of Education. And it has been estimated that 20 to 30...

    (CBS) In the world of energy, the Holy Grail is a power source that's inexpensive and clean, with no emissions. Well over 100 start-ups in Silicon Valley are working on it, and one of them, Bloom Energy, is about to make public its invention: a little power plant-in-a-box they want to put literally in your backyard. You'll generate your own electricity with the box and it'll be wireless. The idea is to one day replace the big power plants and transmission line grid, the way the laptop moved in on the desktop and cell phones supplanted landlines. It has a...

    Fox News correspondent Eric Shawn on Monday hit 60 Minutes for spending ten minutes out of a 13 minute segment highlighting negative dirt on Sarah Palin. At the same time, the news magazine ignored racially charged remarks made by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Shawn analyzed Anderson Cooper’s January 10 interview with the authors of Game Change, observing, "...Most of the CBS story was critical of Sarah Palin." He explained, "The story did not mention Reid calling then-candidate Barack Obama light-skinned with no Negro dialect, comments for which the Senator has since apologized." This is despite the fact that authors...
