60 MINUTES
September 13, 2020  | By David Bianculli

CBS, 7:00 p.m. ET

 
Scott Pelley interviews Bob Woodward about Woodward’s latest book, and bombshell, in which he recorded President Donald Trump for nine hours of total interview sessions – and already has made headlines for some of the things Trump told him. It’s the second President for whom Woodward’s reporting has dealt with accusations and impeachment proceedings, smoking-gun audiotape recordings, and led to the key question, “What did the President know, and when did he know it?” Pelley’s a very good interviewer, and 60 Minutes is a standard stop for Woodward when he’s releasing a new book – but I’d have loved the synergy, and the symmetry, if Woodward’s interviewer this time around would have been another 60 Minutes veteran correspondent, Lesley Stahl. That fateful day in 1972 when Woodward covered the original court appearance of the group that came to be known as the Watergate burglars, one of the only other reporters in the courtroom that day, covering as a young reporter for CBS, was… Lesley Stahl.
