The first woman to hold the position of president and senior executive producer at CBS News, Susan Zirinsky is a seasoned veteran of political and election battles. Her career has spanned more than four decades at the network, beginning right after Watergate, and she was famously the inspiration for Holly Hunter’s character in the 1987 film "Broadcast News." Zirinsky speaks with Walter Isaacson about the backstory on President Trump's infamous "60 Minutes" interview, and the challenges of covering this unique election.
Originally aired on October 28, 2020.

I saw the interview. She interrupted and didn’t ask to do so. She disagreed with almost everything he said or was clearly dissatisfied with his answers. She was clearly not trying to see what he thinks... he was definitely not in the mood to begin with, after her first question was whether he was ready for some « tough questions » and he said no. She should have seen this as a cue that she needed to come off much less agressive and much more conversational. Terrible beginning of an interview.

The interviewer mirrored the interviewee's style in Trump's case. He actually said at one pt in the interview that he liked sparring....until he didn't have a legitimate answer.

Walter. Trump was running for PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. If he can't take talking with Leslie, how's he gonna manage international diplomacy. Easy answer: he DOESN'T. And your shaming of Leslie was blatantly patriarchal, misogynist and condescending.

Dec. 20, 2020 - When is C. Amanpour going to man up and start calling the Biden family out after she shamelessly defended them on Oct. 22, 2020 saying she "follows the facts" while claiming herself to be a "journalist" and that Trump has russian ties - Phht! - now that's hypocrisy!

"Do you have to make sure you're not being softer on Biden, the way Trump said you were-?" This, after implying that perhaps Stahl should've dropped each question as the president side-stepped it out of deference to- what? his whiny personality(?)- rather than follow the dictates of her own profession. The question about Biden does illustrate, too, a frustrating bias mainstream media sources face (and one which is deeply annoying to those of us who are genuinely on the Left): that is, the nonexistant "liberal bias" which nevertheless must be corrected-for, as the PERCEPTION of its existence is there. ~ In reality, Trump is the kind of guy who makes things harder than they need to be. If he answered questions- or if he knew how to respond without viewing an interview as an attack, but as an opportunity to communicate- then he might enjoy interviewing, and these would go more smoothly for him.

Is it appropriate for the President of the United States to personally insult and attack someone who questions him and does their job? Um no. Under no circumstances. In what universe is it acceptable for the leader of the (so called) free world to resort to pathetic, embarrassing, school-yard bully tactics and trolling, yet intelligent people are still justifying and trying to discuss. You can’t and you shouldn’t even try. You can’t argue with a mad man because there are no reasonable or rational points of reference and they will twist and manipulate and shout that the sky is flat or in Donald’s case, that everyone else lies and that he is the victim. You can’t deal with people like him in any normal way because they’re not normal. He should have been diagnosed and removed to an appropriate institution, not allowed to run riot for 4 years, using the Presidency as his personal playground. Social media has allowed this dangerous, narcissistic mental case a platform for his hateful rantings. It’s been the most terrible misuse of power.

Amanpour is the devil in a dress. Trump is the president but everything he does, she attacks. For 4 years it has not stopped. Then she says he doesn't like me! I don't like you and want the show to be canceled. ATT please cancel the show! Maybe she could have a show in Iran. Would not be surprised if they hate her too.

Is it because you’re a woman that you are accused of being more aggressive? Trump needs to be held to account for his rudeness. He’s a bully and she was doing what is appropriate with someone Trump. It’s almost brave, because he does threaten people who push him. He’s a coward.

To those that are harming children, casually, as if they do not matter, they do not feel anything, they do not count, or are just here for a corrupted human's personal use and gain... Know... That whether you believe, that there is A CREATOR or not... It is detestable to sacrifice any and all children for any cause... And whether you believe in A CREATOR or not Everytime... you offend, exploit, force or manipulate a child to work for you (to profit or not, against their will), kidnap (for wicked purposes), harm (out of hatred, for sick pleasure, or out of lack of self-discipline), assault, and kill a child, you are directly offending OUR ALMIGHTY OMNICREATOR, with each one (in various, if not all ways)!!!!!!! To offend OUR OMNICREATOR, with this kind of offense... creates an inexcusable, inescapable, undeniable place, all of your very own in the spiritual realm... This is a place where those who offend and leave this world for this very reason... are subjected to that which they have put out to others, forced to see things the way that they, unjustifiably, did others... A response/reply/comment is not necessary, fore, this is only a warning about your ways... You must repent, turn back from your ways now and do not return to commiting these abominable and detestable offenses with anyone or thing any longer... The time is among us!
