John Dickerson Makes His 60 Minutes Debut Sunday Night

By A.J. Katz 

John Dickerson will make his 60 Minutes debut this coming Sunday.

It’s been a long time coming for the veteran CBS Newser, who joined the network from Slate magazine as a political analyst and contributor in 2009. The one-time CBS News political director helmed the CBS News Sunday public affairs show Face the Nation from 20152018, and had a brief stint as CBS This Morning co-host before transitioning to the role of correspondent for the legendary newsmagazine earlier this year.

Dickerson sat down with head of the European Central Bank, Christine Lagarde, on a Normandy Beach last month.  The debut piece is running second on Sunday’s broadcast.

Here’s a tiny excerpt:

DICKERSON: You’ve met President Trump, would you…


DICKERSON: talk to him about this, and make the case that you’ve had about independence of central bankers?

LAGARDE : Absolutely.

DICKERSON: And what would you say?

LAGARDE: Market stability should not be the subject of a tweet here or a tweet there.  It requires consideration, thinking, quiet and measured and rational decisions.
