The Prosecution of Governor Siegelman

This 60 Minutes piece from a few weeks ago was astounding. I had heard about it because of the temporary station outage at CBS’s Alabama affiliate conveniently lasting the length of the piece. Of course, in its defense, the Alabama affiliate did re-broadcast the piece a week later. Timing it for maximum attention, they broadcast it during prime time on a Sunday.

In an odd turn of events, the re-broadcast of the short segment – as well as the rest of CBS’s lineup had extremely low ratings that night because of the brand-new phenom of February TV, the Superbowl.
