60 Minutes: Go Dig Your Grave

"This kind of journalism does not have much in common with the tradition of Ed R. Murrow or what his associate, Fred Friendly, taught me at the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University when I took my degree there in the late 70ies."

Samuel Rachlin, Danish journalism's anchor of classical virtues, cuts to pieces the scandalous biased programme on Denmark, aired by 60 Minutes anchor: Bob Simon.

"What we got was a presentation so biased, distorted and corrupted by so many inaccuracies and innuendos that it was impossible to recognize Denmark. I am sorry to say it, but it is shameful for the profession that both Bob Simon and I belong to."

Samuel Rachlin is sharp and to the point, - and he sums it up on behalf of all of us:

"We have this disrespectful streak which sometimes gets us into trouble. But quite frankly, we don’t give a damn and, like the little boy in the fairy tale, we will tell anyone that they are naked, if that’s what they are. We don’t care if it is an emperor, an editor - or a correspondent."
