Steve Kroft on Romney and Obama as TV guests, and the amazing challenge of filling job openings at '60 Minutes'
Veteran 60 Minutes reporter Steve Kroft said it's been hard finding a reporter to hire for the show. "I know it sounds really crazy. I think there is more money right now in being an anchor man and I think that people feel that the cable news networks created all of these anchor positions, and it's just been hard to try and find someone who we think is good who wants to do it really badly who says, 'I'd love to be on 60 Minutes. That's all I want to do.'"
For the last few decades, it has been taken as a given by urban planners that “urban renewal,” the approach to planning in the 1950s and early '60s that resulted in bulldozed neighborhoods, modern public housing projects, and lots of urban highways, was a bad way to go about building a city. It has been taken as a given that a better way to go about it is to make the streets better for people and worse for cars, and encourage “mixed-use” development, among other things.
