- Here's the full transcript of the 60 Minutes segment:
- Video of first segment
- And some of the reactions (all negative, please send any positive you find, I'll add them)
- — Jim Hanas (@jimhanas)Mon, Dec 16 2013 00:42:58And the segment is over. Not a single quote from an NSA critic. 60 Minutes has given up and gotten into the press release business.
- — Beachwood Reporter (@BeachwoodReport)Mon, Dec 16 2013 00:34:54If you tuned in expecting to see 60 Minutes, just go read the NSA's press releases. On the West Coast, too.

- — Shane Harris (@shaneharris)Mon, Dec 16 2013 00:36:41This 60 Minutes report on NSA has gone from one-sided to misleading. No critics? No skeptics to question the cyber Armageddon claims?
- — Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald)Mon, Dec 16 2013 00:40:5760 Minutes forgot to ask about how James Clapper & Keith Alexander routinely lied to Congress & FISA courts - just ran out of time.
