Goofs

In Andy Rooney's segment of 30 November 2008, the location of his seat in Giants Stadium was digitally blurred at the top of his season ticket - though the blurred region shifted enough to reveal most of the information - but all for naught as the same information was left unobstructed and even pointed to by Mr. Rooney at the bottom of the ticket, as well as the ticket's bar code and accompanying number.

Still the Gold Standard
10 October 2005 | by SargebriSee all my reviews

"60 Minutes" is definitely the originator of all the great television news magazines. Every Sunday night for several years I have either watched the show or listened to it on the local CBS radio affiliate here in Los Angeles. To me "60 Minutes" works in two different ways. The first is as an investigative program that looks hard at very controversial issues that the public should be made aware of. The show also is great at doing wonderful celebrity profiles. It really allows the general public to look at the lives of various celebrities and show what they are like once the spotlight is off. Of course, the show has its detractors who say that it has become very self important, but this will always be to me one of the most influential shows in the history of television.
