Can 60 Minutes Do the U.N.?

Many years ago, Big Media Journalism (such as 60 Minutes) would be ALL OVER such a story, wouldn't it? Yet they are still trying to drum up leads for the Bush in the National Guard story.

Even if they dislike the political overtones of covering stories tracked closely by more conservative reporters, aren't they interested in ratings? Viacom stockholders, take note.
