MORLEY SAFER
In his more than 40 years in journalism, Morley Safer has been the recipient of every major award in the field. A year after joining CBS News in 1964, he was sent to open the network's Saigon bureau. In 1965, he delivered one of the most significant and memorable reports of the Vietnam conflict, as he chronicled the burning of the South Vietnamese village of Cam Ne by U.S. Marines. The report shocked Americans and prompted the U.S. military to issue new rules of engagement. Now in his 34th season as a correspondent and editor for "60 Minutes," Safer has produced some of the program's milestone reports, including a segment that dealt with Lenell Geter's wrongful conviction for armed robbery and resulted in Geter's release from jail.
