“Ticking Clock”: 60 Minutes’ secrets, stories and scandals (VIDEO)

Ira Rosen, Producer

He also tells about some of his fascinating contacts and interviews: Ghislaine Maxwell (Jeffrey Epstein’s one-time sidekick) and the supposed Clinton tapes; President Carter and the UFO files; how the mob may have blackmailed J. Edgar Hoover; and candid phone calls with Marlon Brando.

  1. Hello,
    Thank you for the interview with Ira Rosen. It was very interesting.

    I looked up your website after listening to your speech at Hilldale College in early 2021. I live in Northern California and this last election seemed dangerous to me. Tolerance and divergent views are now not tolerated here. I wonder if I am alone in this observation? When I discovered that the Northern California Republican Party Rep’s home was vandalized and nearly destroyed in the Gilroy/Morgan Hill area, by people who did not agree with him or his views, I felt afraid…for the first time in my life.. It was underscored when I voted in November. At the voting booth the voting assistant stood near me as I made my choice for President. When I was placing my card in the box she struggled to see how I voted. Your Hillsdale speech reminded me of the fact that impartial news, when devoid, leads to a dangerous chilling effect. . Thank you. Be well. Claudia

  2. Great interview. Sharyl skillfully allowed Ira Rosen to reveal himself as the less than credible rumor monger that he is. Anyone equipped with a decent BS meter can pick on all the self important grandiose embellishments.

  3. The only thing wrong with this interview is the brevity of it. I wish it was the length of a Joe Rogan – three hour interview. We need more of the noble journalists with a longer spotlight. It would be lovely to have an interview with James O’Keefe.

    This brought a smile to me, it’s a Frank Capra moment.


  4. I just listened to Slanted from Hillsdale. Amazing insights. In 1969 I graduated in Broadcast journalism from WSU. All of the insights you provided were taught to me. Flash forward to 1995 I was appointed a Wahington State Senator. During the Campaign for reelection, a local reporter did a story on ‘SlumLords.” There were 3 stories: 1 about an owner with 200 units all low maintained, another about an owner with 12 units, low maintained. And me with 1 unit that had a leaky garage roof. That’s when I experienced the ‘Slant.’ I told the reporter that if I did journalism his way, I would not have graduated!!

    Keep up your efforts.

    I hope a solution is found sooner, not later.
