    "60 Minutes" seemed to mess up at every turn, from relying on a known liar as its main source; to failing to disclose its corporate ties to the book the source was writing; to stonewalling the media when questions were raised about the source's veracity; to giving an apology that few felt was sufficient."

    60 Minutes is losing credibility. Last Sunday's story on the NSA looked like something arranged by a publicist.

    CBS's 60 Minutes program has been offering up irresponsible 'journalism' for many years. This program was one of the first to do 'gotcha' style reporting. Remember some of the horrible close up photography of people being interviewed? Sister Theresa herself would look guilty under that kind of photography. Yet in those interviews, the interviewer would be photographed at a comfortable distance - showing his torso, shirt, jacket, tie, and pleasant lighting. Nobody in his right mind would subject himself (or herself) to an interview with 60 Minutes.
