60 Minutes is a weekly news program that has aired on American television since 1968. Its success has resulted in multiple international spin offs, although the American edition remains the most well-known. It is generally considered to be high-quality and balanced reporting, for which it has garnered multiple Emmy and Peabody Awards. A wide variety of respected media figures have been involved with the show over the years, including Dan Rather, Mike Wallace, Sanjay Gupta, and Anderson Cooper. 60 Minutes is known for its employment of investigative journalism, which blends independent investigation with the examination of investigations started by other media outlets and organizations. This tactic has frequently resulted in the coverage of controversial topics, such as police brutality and racism in the United States. Each episode typically focuses on three stories. These range in content, although recurring themes include politics, technology, justice, corporate investigation, and character profiles. 60 Minutes additionally featured a closing commentary from Andy Rooney, in which he would ruminate on a given topic in a cynical and humorous manner. The segment ran from 1978 until Rooney's death in October, 2011.

Despite the general acclaim awarded to the program, it has occasionally been on the receiving end of negative controversy. Two particularly notable incidents occurred in 1997 and 2000. The first was an investigation into drug smuggling that provided unfounded evidence accusing the US Customs Agency of being actively involved in promoting drug smuggling across southern borders. 60 Minutes later retracted the accusations. In 2000, the program interviewed Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, and allowed him free reign to criticize the government of the United States in an attempt to justify his actions. Following the story, media access to in-person interviews with death row inmates was prohibited. Despite incidents such as these, the overall quality of 60 Minutes remains high, and the show is a well-respected fixture of American news. 60 Minutes airs on Sunday nights at 7 pm Eastern Time.
