CBS: Stormy Daniels '60 Minutes' Interview Needs More Work Before It Airs

Source: Talking Points Memo/AP




By Associated Press | March 13, 2018 10:23 am

NEW YORK (AP) — The head of CBS News said Tuesday that a “60 Minutes” interview with adult film star Stormy Daniels is on its way but that more journalistic work needs to be done on the story.

News President David Rhodes’ statement at a conference in Israel Tuesday was the first time CBS publicly confirmed it had interviewed Daniels, who has alleged an extramarital affair with Donald Trump before he became president. Trump has denied this. Michael Avenatti, lawyer for the actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, last week tweeted a picture of himself, Clifford and CBS interviewer Anderson Cooper.

No air date has been set for the interview.

Rhodes, in remarks reported by Variety, said he could not imagine what the basis would be for any legal action by Trump’s team to prevent the interview from airing. BuzzFeed had reported that Trump’s lawyers were considering seeking an injunction to stop it.

2. That means that Trumps lawyers

 

Are enforcing the non disclosure agreement and CBS is trying to get around it. I assume it will end up in front of SCOTUS. We may see it in a few years!

4. CBS has good lawyers also

60 Minutes has been doing this for a long time. They've weathered many lawsuits over the years, I'm sure they know how to get around this. It will go on the air once the lawyers check everything out.

Just remember that 60 Minutes hasn't signed any NDA with Trump or anybody else.

12. Or could be they have new information that needs to be added...

Maybe something that focuses in on the affair and will be hard for tRump to challenge.

15. Or she said something really salacious that can potentially be independently verified

and they want to do due diligence so they don't get sued for libel.

13. I agree.

I'd say a better release date would be sometime in October.

16. "Rhodes statement...was the 1st time CBS publicly confirmed it had interviewed Daniels"...

Assuming this is correct, was there ever a formal date set for the airing of the program? That involves releasing their content schedule to a variety of entities, which does make it public, more or less. Was there just an assumption that it would air on the next upcoming date?

It may just be that their attorneys asked that they double-check some aspect of the interview. (And given that various parties involved here (except Trump himself) keep yapping publicly, it would not be surprising it something else caught the lawyers' attention.) Given the office in question, regardless of who occupies it, the attorneys have to be going the belt plus two pairs of suspenders route.
