Not What It Once Was

By Jack_McCoy - Dec 30 2018
Read more

This is the audio for the long-running CBS news show. So, it’s exactly what is advertised. The problem is 60 Minutes has gone downhill over the years. No longer a hard-hitting investigative journalism show, it’s now too often a forum for softball interviews, facile feature stories, superficial trend packages, interminably boring segments, and pieces that uncritically toe the line of those in power. Sure, there’s a good story here and there (like some of their recent bits on Big Pharma), but for the most part if you want real news documentaries that tell truth to power you’re going to have to look elsewhere. Panorama, Horizon, and This World from the BBC in the UK, The Fifth Estate from the CBC in Canada, Zembla in the Netherlands, Four Corners from the ABC in Australia, and even Frontline on PBS: all make the current state of 60 minutes look like a kindergarten school play. I’m rooting for 60 Minutes, I really am; they just need someone to remind them what real, adversarial journalism looks like.
