Mitt Romney, President Obama In Dueling Interviews on CBS ’60 Minutes’ Sunday


By Alex Weprin Comment

CBS newsmagzine “60 Minutes” has finally scheduled the interview it conducted with President Obama. As expected, it will be  paired with an interview with his competitor, GOP candidate Mitt Romney. Steve Kroft interviewed President Obama for “60 Minutes” last week, and Scott Pelley speaks to Romney this week.

The interviews will air on “60 Minutes” this Sunday, September 23. Topics of discussion with both men will include the economy  jobs and healthcare.

The interviews, combined with  a NFL lead-in, should lead the program to some very strong ratings. Particularly during the main TV season, “60 Minutes” is the number one TV news program in the country, making it a very popular stop for politicians.
