CBS TV's "60 Minutes" Turns Up the Heat with "Cold Fusion Is Hot Again"

Back to April 16 News New Energy Times Story

Transcript of Broadcast

A bit of drama followed this broadcast. Soon after it aired April 19, 2009, CBS pulled the popular video from it's Web site without explanation. Conspiracy theorists mobilized; we investigated. Turns out that the American Physical Society protested the reference to its organization.

In response, CBS took the video off-line for about 24 hours. The network edited the offending segment, removed the reference to APS and put the revised video back online at a new Web address. Mysteriously, CBS put the original version back online sometime before May 24.

But wait...the drama continues...the original segment with the offending "APS comment" has mysteriously reappeared online as of May 24.


April 24, 1800hrs PST - "60 Minutes"piece is back online - sans the American Physical Society's non-endorsement.




On April 24, 2009, New Energy Times learned that "60 Minutes" removed its April 19 "Cold Fusion" program from YouTube. Here is a screenshot:
