    60 Minutes ^ | Jan 21, 2016 | Steve Kroft
    The following is a script from "Anonymous, Inc." which aired on Jan. 31, 2016. Steve Kroft is the correspondent. Graham Messick and Kevin Livelli, producers. If you like crime dramas and movies with international intrigue, then you probably have a basic understanding of money laundering. It's how dictators, drug dealers, corrupt politicians, and other crooks avoid getting caught by transforming their ill-gotten gains into assets that appear to be legitimate. They do it by moving the dirty money through a maze of dummy corporations and offshore bank accounts that conceal their identity and the source of the funds. And most...

    Complete Headline: Breaking the Kennedy code of silence: Patrick goes on national TV to expose his family's secrets as he launches book describing how 'disabling alcoholism' killed his father Ted, his mom and his sister Patrick Kennedy has broken the political dynasty's 'code of silence' by describing how he turned to drink at 13 to deal with the multitude of his family's problems. The former Congressman told CBS' 60 Minutes how his alcoholic mother Joan would walk around in a bathrobe 'inebriated' during the day while his father, Senator Ted Kennedy, would self-medicate by drinking.

    ccording to the transcript of Donald Trump's interview with Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes, Mr. Trump favors a single payer health care plan in certain situations. During the interview, Pelley asked Mr. Trump what his plan was to replace Obamacare would look like. Mr. Trump responded, saying "I am going to take care of everybody. I don’t care if it costs me votes or not. Everybody’s going to be taken care of much better than they’re taken care of now." When Pelley pressed Mr. Trump further about who would pay for this coverage, Mr. Trump said "the government’s gonna pay...

    Hillary Clinton could be prosecuted in federal court for failing to tell President Barack Obama about her private email server at the time she was running it, according to a veteran FBI agent. Obama said flatly during a '60 Minutes' interview on Sunday that 'No,' he did not know Clinton sidestepped security protocols with her a home-brew email setup while she was his secretary of state. The FBI agent who spoke with DailyMail.com has had a 20-year career in federal law enforcement and serves in a supervisory capacity in a domestic FBI field office. He said on Friday that failing...

    Federal agents were still cataloging the classified information from Hillary Rodham Clintons personal email server last week when President Obama went on television and played down the matter. I dont think it posed a national security problem, Mr. Obama said Sunday on CBSs 60 Minutes. He said it was a mistake for Mrs. Clinton to use a private email account when she was secretary of state, but his conclusion was unmistakable: This is not a situation in which Americas national security was endangered. Those statements angered F.B.I. agents who have been working for months to determine whether Ms. Clintons email...

    When Dan Rather filed suit against CBS 14 months ago -- claiming, among other things, that his former employer had commissioned a politically biased investigation into his work on a "60 Minutes" segment about President Bush's National Guard service -- the network predicted the quick and favorable dismissal of the case, which it derided as "old news." So far, Mr. Rather has spent more than $2 million of his own money on the suit. And according to documents filed recently in court, he may be getting something for his money. Using tools unavailable to him as a reporter including...

    This story by Bernard Goldberg certainly takes me back to the early days of my blogging career. Shortly after the 2004 Republican convention, Mary Mapes produced a segment for 60 Minutes II that alleged that George W. Bush had manipulated his enlistment in the Texas Air National Guard to avoid serving in combat in Vietnam. The documents used by CBS, Mapes, and Dan Rather turned out to be clumsy hoaxes, which the blogosphere exposed through careful review of their substance and their form (the latter of which I played a small part in refuting, with my expertise in printing and...

    On the eve of the first Democratic presidential debate, President Obama is downplaying Hillary Rodham Clintons use of a private email server to conduct government business, saying she made a mistake but didnt endanger national security. I think shed be the first to acknowledge that maybe she could have handled the original decision better and the disclosures more quickly, Mr. Obama said in an interview on CBS 60 Minutes broadcast Sunday night. I dont think it posed a national security problem. It was a mistake that she has acknowledged. When interviewer Steve Kroft pointed out that the administration has prosecuted...

"I said in the beginning he's not going to go away quickly. He isn't going to be the shooting star that goes away.

    President Obama now says he never believed in the $500-million program to train and equip the moderate Syrian opposition. The administration last week halted the failed program, which ended up training fewer than 100 Syrians, all but four or five of whom deserted or died after the Americans tried to turn them into anti-ISIS fighters. Steve, this is why Ive been skeptical from the get-go about the notion that we were going to effectively create this proxy army inside Syria, Obama told CBS Steve Kroft during an interview for 60 Minutes.

    I dont want to say theyre unsafe, but theyre dangerous. That was how President Obamas former transportation secretary Ray LaHood described Americas roads and bridges in a pre-Thanksgiving interview on CBSs 60 Minutes. The high-profile story left viewers with the distinct impression that Americas roads and bridges are crumbling, and politicians were to blame. First, lets dispense with the notion that travel in America is a life-jeopardizing experience. According to the Federal Highway Administrations own 2013 report, the number of structurally deficient and functionally obsolete bridges has decreased every year since 2000. This same report also shows that fatalities and...

    NEW YORK Robert Redford will play Dan Rather in a film about the former CBS anchors disputed report about President George W. Bushs National Guard service. The film, titled Truth, will be adapted from the memoir Truth And Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power by former CBS producer Mary Mapes, said the production company, Mythology Entertainment. Cate Blanchett is signed on to play Mapes. If you followed the 2004 presidential campaign, you probably recall the disputed 60 Minutes report claiming that George W. Bush shirked his duties and failed to follow orders as a young...
  • Unamed Pentagon Official: The President is lying to America

    The Daily Caller ^ | 10-1-14 | "Joseph Miller"
    Joseph Miller is the pen name for a ranking Department of Defense official with a background in U.S. special operations and combat experience in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has worked in strategic planning. President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night 60 Minutes interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh...
  • You can love Palin without wanting her to be president (Journolist Alert)

    Politico ^ | 8/30/10 | Journolist Liberal Ben Smith, pissant's latest hero
    A new 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll offers what is, I think, a somewhat misleading way to look at Sarah Palin. The poll finds that 59% of Americans and 40% of Republicans don't think she'd make an "effective president" -- numbers that come very close to disqualifying her even in the primary, if she chooses to run. This trouble imagining President Palin is constant across the polling since soon after she was chosen as John McCain's running mate, and it reflects both her own lack of experience and the higher bar set for a woman -- Hillary Clinton did years of...

    <p>If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished.</p> <p>The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him -- The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI "informant." Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes "snitching." No, he says he "volunteered" to "cooperate" with the FBI -- and for the most honorable of motives.</p>
  • Time for a public hearing about the stock market?

    It's time for a public hearing about what's going on with our stock market. I've said Michael Lewis' claim that the stock market is "rigged" is a gross exaggeration, but we can thank him for one thing: the megaphone he has with "60 Minutes" has helped revive a sleepy debate on what is rightand wrongwith our market structure. And now, it is time to strike while the iron is hot: It's time for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to convene a series of public hearings on the stock market.

    On CBSs 60 Minutes on Sunday night, national security correspondent David Martin chronicled the seemingly never-ending list of problems with the Pentagons next-generation F-35 fight jet, from cost overruns of $160 billion to technical problems that have plagued the planes development. When asked if the F-35 program, which is expected to cost some $1.5 trillion over the four-decade life of the program, is now under control, the Pentagons acquisition chief, Frank Kendall, said, "Yes, it is." But that commitment came with a warning. Long gone is the time when we're going to pay for mistake after mistake after mistake," said...

    How did Jay Leno really feel in 2009, when NBC revealed its master plan to hand The Tonight Show over to Conan OBrien? The comedian doesnt mince words in an upcoming interview with 60 Minutes, telling Steve Kroft that the decision took him completely by surprise. I was blindsided, he says, according to CBS News.
