No Online Poker, This Week on 60 Minutes

by , Oct 23, 2008 | 9:29 pm

CBS has posted their sked for this weekend — and while adjusting story line-ups is standard operating procedure for any real journalistic operation, that rumored Oct. 26 date isn’t so. What is on the agenda for this next Sunday [from]:

Sunday, Oct. 26, 2008
CREDIT DEFAULT SWAPS – Steve Kroft examines the complicated financial instruments known as credit default swaps and the central role they are playing in the unfolding economic crisis. L. Franklin Devine is the producer.

T. BOONE PICKENS – The oil and gas maven is on a mission to lessen America’s dependence on foreign oil. Charlie Rose reports. Michael Radutzky and Tanya Simon are the producers.

GORONGOSA – American Greg Carr is using his great wealth to try to help some of the poorest people in Africa by attracting more tourists to their neighborhood – the beautiful national park of Gorongosa in Mozambique. Scott Pelley reports. Rebecca Peterson and Henry Schuster are the producers.

And a few minutes with Andy Rooney …

My personal guess is that they will time it with the final table of the main event … either the weekend immediately before or immediately after.

UPDATE: More good info on what 60 Minutes has in store on the NWP Radio podcast (about 45 min in).
