The President of the United States of America and the President of the World sat down together in their first joint interview that aired Sunday on “60 Minutes.” In the video below you will see that President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have come a long way since their 2008 battle for the White House and accomplished much more than many ever expected.
Short of affirming this CBS interview as an endorsement for Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House in 2016, an office she has yet to say she will seek, the President used this as a chance to thank someone who he called “one of the finest” Secretaries of State in history.
You can watch video of the first part of the Obama-Clinton interview here and video of the second half of the interview below:
In the second part of this historic interview, President Obama and Secretary Clinton talk about her health and any regrets they have from the past four years. Here is that video:
Anderson Cooper sat down with Olympic record setting swimmer Michael Phelps in an interview for CBS’ 60 Minutes that aired on Sunday. The piece revealed that Phelps isn’t as enthusiastic about swimming as he once was. We also got to see a rematch between Michael and Anderson who raced in the pool the last time they met.
Throughout life, we always hear people in positions of authority use the phrase “do as I say, not as I do.” However, it wasn’t until later in life when I truly understood what that statement means. Now as an adult, I hope and pray that those with whom I interact can at least refrain from picking up any of my less than flattering qualities. As the story goes, “do as I say, not as I do.”
Oprah’s BFF has a new gig. Gayle King is the new face of the “CBS Morning Show” which will replace the “Early Show”
King will co-anchor with news veteran Charlie Rose. King will take the anchor desk at the “CBS Morning Show” with Rose starting at 8am daily.
Rose will start the day along side Erica Hill who seems to be the only survivor of the “Early Show” revamp. The CBS program has consistently been in the third spot behind ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “Today” on NBC. However, CBS says their “Early Show” replacement anchors, remodeled set and the loss of Meredith Vieria in addition to the speculation that Matt Lauer will also be leaving “Today” soon will offer a new take on early morning television possibly moving them into contention.
Adding King and Rose to their morning show isn’t the only change at CBS. They also picked up Chris Licht as the Vice-President of Programming, who most recently worked as Executive Producer on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”.
“Right now viewers basically have two choices,” Licht said. “They have the ‘Today’ show and they have the ‘Today’ show (imitator) with probably a little bit more broad appeal stuff. Those two shows are very similar but are both good at what they do. We need to try to find a third thing. Maybe viewers don’t know if they like it or not because it doesn’t exist right now.”
Chris Wragge, who has anchored along side Hill, returned to his previous post anchoring at WCBS in New York several months ago. His last day as co-anchor at “The Early Show” was Friday, but he says he’ll be back in the future.
Jeff Glor, Rebecca Jarvis and John Miller will also be a part of the new “CBS Morning Show” team.
