Aired: June 6, 2019 | Transcript

There was a time when "60 Minutes" correspondent and former "CBS Evening News" anchor Scott Pelley said he was really looking forward to the 21st Century. But after 9/11, the Bush Administration's "war against terror" and the hyper-partisan swing in politics, everything seemed to change.

Everything, he writes in a new book, but the fact that truth and values matter.

The veteran newsman documented his experiences around the world following the major stories and the people affected by them in, "Truth Worth Telling: A Reporter’s Search for Meaning in the Stories of Our Times."

Pelley joined Midday Edition Thursday to talk about his career and more.

Pelley will be at a Warwick’s event on Thursday at 7 p.m to speak about his book. The event is being held at the University of San Diego’s Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice.
