60 Minutes has a new edition with three reports on various topics scheduled for Sunday, November 9. This week’s agenda includes Ebola, the VA system, and a profile of actor Steve Carell. Here’s a look at what’s coming up Sunday night on CBS.
60 Minutes: Ebola Hot Zone
Ebola has died down as a news topic in the last week or so, replaced by midterm elections and changing weather patterns. But 60 Minutes is keeping the story alive, and correspondent Lara Logan is sharing a dispatch from the front lines.
For her report, she visited an Ebola treatment center in Liberia, which is operated by the International Medical Corps. There, Americans are helping to fight the potentially deadly disease. I guess 60 Minutes deserves credit for bringing the real story to us, since this is where the Ebola crisis has been unfolding for months. See it firsthand on Sunday, November 9.
60 Minutes: Fixing the VA
When military service members defend the United States, that duty comes with certain opportunities, such as healthcare provided by the VA. But as many can and have said, the standard of care in these facilities is sometimes lacking. Remember the scandal over wait times for patients to make appointments?
Now, Secretary for Veterans’ Affairs Robert McDonald is attempting a large-scale reorganization of the VA system, and he is talking with Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes about what’s involved and what challenges lie ahead. Look for this interview to find out more over the weekend.
60 Minutes: Steve Carell
He may be best known for his role in the long-running US version of TV sitcom The Office, or a string of successful comedy films. But Steve Carell is taking a dramatic turn for his upcoming role in the movie Foxcatcher, which is inspired by the true story of Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz.
Carell is talking with Steve Kroft about his career success, and why this role may be a departure from what audiences are used to. See that conversation on 60 Minutes Sunday, November 9.
