President Obama on '60 Minutes': 'I Do Get Discouraged' (VIDEO)

President Obama on '60 Minutes': 'I Do Get Discouraged'It hasn't been the greatest week for President Obama. His party suffered a historic reversal in the midterm elections, and the sitting president has faced criticism from all sides. And so, at the end of a very long week, he got to appear on '60 Minutes' (Sun., 7PM ET on CBS) and defend his record one more time.

At times, it seemed like all the criticism was getting to Obama. He said this: "I do get discouraged." Correspondent Steve Kroft used the interview to grill Obama on the economy. The president said he was pleased with his record, but added that there were elements that were beyond his control. "As president ... you're held responsible for everything, but you don't always have control of everything."

Ex-'Tonight Show' Host Conan O'Brien Vents On '60 Minutes'

conan_o'brien_nbc_beard_close_upFor the first time since the end of his tenure on 'The Tonight Show,' Conan O'Brien had a chance to appear on camera and share his thoughts on the whole long, drawn out civil war between him and Jay Leno and NBC and GE and the late night industry at large.

For the record, Conan O'Brien's sit down with Steve Kroft on '60 Minutes' on May 2, 2010 -- the first date he was contractually allowed to discuss what happened -- clearly established that while he's disappointed about what happened, Conan O'Brien is not defeated. To paraphrase 'Evita,' "Don't cry for him, America."

Questions We'd Ask Conan O'Brien on '60 Minutes'

Conan O'BrienFinally after being bound and gagged by the confines of an NBC contract, Coco will be able to remove that ball gag that Jeff Zucker finds so fetching and speak his mind.

He'll be sitting down with '60 Minutes'' Steve Kroft this Sunday for an exclusive interview on everything that's happened since he gave 'The Tonight Show' back to Jay Leno, just a day shy of his interview contract deadline.

This isn't intended to question Kroft's journalistic ability or choice of questions, but he has a position that most TV fans would sacrifice a live goat to have. Ever since the "s" hit the "f" during NBC's "Late Night-Gate," people have been dying to ask Coco questions that could cost him money, legal fees and quite possibly a finger if he answered them before his contract expired. Here are the questions that inquiring minds want to know.

60 Minutes won't replace Bradley, until they do

Ed BradleyOdd headline over at the Asbury Park Press. It says ""60 Minutes Has No Plans To Replace Bradley," but then in the article there's a quote from the show's executive producer, Jeff Fager, where he says "It's a long-term project to find the next full-time person who can show the abilities that are expected of a 60 Minutes correspondent."

Sounds to me like they do have plans to replace Bradley, but not until next season.

But what's the big deal here? Did we really expect that 60 Minutes can just lose a top reporter and not replace him? And I hate the word "replace" anyway, like he just kept a spot warm and now they're throwing another person in there to take up the spot. Bradley himself won't (and can't) be replaced, he was unique. It's his duties that will be done by someone else.
