  • The Murder of an American Nazi

    CBS News ^ | September 25, 2011
    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,...

    CBS News ^ | September 23, 2011
    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    "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...

    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."

Specifically I am referring to the segment that was allegedly devoted to the new book “Game Change” about the 2008 Presidential election. Quite simply, (partly because it dealt with subjects about which I have...

However, he didn't highlight the federal government's culpability in driving up those costs, or what it might mean for health care reform.

    31 years ago, in 1978, the television program 60 Minutes put on an episode about the awful threat of "video piracy" to the movie industry. Featuring the MPAA's Jack Valenti, the episode focused on how the VCR was going to destroy the movie business because anyone could copy and watch a movie in the privacy of their own home. Of course, in retrospect, that episode is hilariously wrong. You would think that, given how wrong they got it thirty years ago on this particular subject, 60 Minutes would be a bit more careful taking on the same subject again. No...

    Here is video from CBS News' "60 Minutes" last night where they took a hard look at the need for much harsher penalties against DWI offenses. It focuses on a family who were hit head-on by a drunk-driver, with their 7 year-old daughter killed. The report shows dramatic video of a dash-cam inside the limousine the family was in. You can see the drunk driver's vehicle coming right at the limo and then the crash takes place. The report then deals with the prosecutor in the case seeking a charge of "murder by depraved indifference" against the young man who...

    When $27 billion is at stake, some companies would pay big bucks to win a PR battle, but one side of an environmental lawsuit doesn't have to, since CBS is pushing its position for free. On CBS's May 3 "60 Minutes," correspondent Scott Pelley, who once compared global-warming skepticism to Holocaust denial, gave the plaintiff of a $27-billion frivolous lawsuit against Chevron a public relations victory with his report. Pelley's report featured a suit filed by the Amazon Defense Coalition, a group described as "eco-radicals," who are trying to squeeze $27 billion from Chevron for environmental cleanup that the nation's...

    So what is Freeman's solution to the "race problem?" Why stop talking about it, of course. Mike Wallace has no frickin' idea how to handle that kind of blasphemous candor.

    We were told it was the first time Mike Wallace had ever apologized to an elected official on air on 60 Minutes. For all I know, it still might be the only time. And 15 years later, in this age of Obama when the establishment media is hostile to conservatives, the episode still can teach lessons about how to fight back with the truth.
  • Is the Anti-gun personality backing down or being brought down?

    There is no single person who has an anti-liberty personalty; there are simply hundreds of thousands of them. You know them by their notions which seem to work against the better judgment of the electorate, and their use of abusive laws to make them stick. The entire report from ABC’s 20/20, "If I Only Had A Gun..", was to fabricate how silly, how futile, how dangerous is the idea of armed self-defense. But, dangerous for whom, is what I ask. Thugs in a large civil disturbance? Anti-liberty activists fighting for their prestige? Somali Pirates? The report-that-became-an-informercial posited that we cannot...
  • How Ahmad Batebi Survived Torture In Iran (60 Minutes interview)

    (CBS) Much of the attention on Iran over the last few years has focused on its mysterious nuclear program. Another mystery that has received far less attention is torture in Iran's prisons. It's a story the Iranian government doesn't want you to hear; a story a man risked his life to tell. His name is Ahmad Batebi, and quite by accident he became one of the most famous dissidents in Iran. He says he endured years of torture in an Iranian prison, after his picture appeared on the cover of The Economist magazine. He escaped from Iran last year, and...

    After much speculation that President Obama was high during this 60 Minutes interview, we found evidence that CBS tried to cover up the President's indiscretion. This is the raw footage of Obama's interview with Steve Croft. You have to look close to discover all of the elements that were covered or removed from the televised version by the clever use of deceptive editing.

    On Sunday’s CBS 60 Minutes, commentator Andy Rooney read from some viewer letters: "It's always fun to read the letters people send, I get a lot of them, although, to be honest, if I took all the letters seriously I wouldn't ever say anything again. I get quite a few bad letters and, of course, I pay least attention to those. I don't want you to see me cry." Some of those "bad letters" came from viewers who criticized Rooney’s and the media’s pro-Obama bias: "Thomas Overley writes from Oceanside, California. He's mad because he thinks I like President Obama....
