Morley Safer talked about his early years at CBS News, revealing that he never finished college, and his impressions of Douglas Brinkley’s new biography, Cronkite, the designation of Mr. Cronkite as “the most trusted man in America,” and told stories of working with the former CBS News anchor in London and other locales. He also discussed some of the most controversial episodes of the weekly news magazine “60 Minutes.” Topics included his disapproval of the citizen journalism trend on the Internet, and his family life and legacy.

Mr. Safer reacted to video clips of a C-SPAN tour of his office in New York City and to clips from C-SPAN programs. Also shown were video clips of “60 Minutes” colleagues and his April 1, 2012, report on the arts.

Morley Safer, a “60 Minutes” correspondent for forty-two years, joined CBS News as a reporter in 1964. He began his journalism career at various newspapers in Canada, and was a correspondent and producer for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. close
