    Morley Safer Plays for Team MorleyWelcome to another installment of “Tuesdays With Morley,” a semi-regular feature in which Daily Intel runs into Morley Safer at an event (he’s quite the man-about-town, you know) and quizzes the venerable 60 Minutes reporter about the events of the day. In the past, Safer has told us stories about being a journalist back in the day and sounded off on current media issues, like whether Katie Couric’s going to Iraq was actually just bullshit hype. Last night, we saw him at the premiere party for John Adams at MoMA, and Morley took a few minutes out from admiring the framers to talk about the supposed media bias toward Obama, the new Wall Street Journal, and the controversy surrounding his old CBS teammate Dan Rather.

    Tuesdays With MorleyYou know how, even in a city as big as New York, there’s that one person you always run into? New York has that, only our guy is 60 Minutes host Morley Safer, who is quite the man-about-town. We saw Morley last Tuesday at the Feast of Love screening, and then ran into him again at the Met Opera last night, where he told us a wonderful little story about back in the day. At 60 Minutes I lost it [laughing] half a dozen times. Once I fell asleep in the middle of an interview. The guy I was interviewing … I’m not going to mention. He was a very prominent retired spymaster. He insisted I have a couple of whiskeys, but I’d been flying for twelve hours and driving for four. The cameraman pulled his arm around the camera and pulled my ear. I woke up — and collapsed again. He didn’t notice. A dotty old Englishman. We don’t know about you, but we’re pretty sure we learned something about Life from this. —Tim Murphy

    Morley Safer Not Loving Couric’s ‘Bullshit Hype’New York ran into 60 Minutes correspondent Morley Safer at last night’s Feast of Love screening, and there was a vague sense of embarrassment for having just watched a movie with so much sexing alongside with an elder statesman of journalism. But Morley is a salty elder statesman of journalism, it turns out! “What’s wrong with nudity?” Safer bellowed. “Look, I’d rather watch nudity than violence. A famous director once told me, ‘A tit never killed anyone.’” Ha — it’s always so delightful when the senior citizens say “tit”! Tell us more!
