Angelina Jolie

Bob Simon meets with Angelina Jolie at the Budapest museum that served as the set for In the Land of Blood and Honey. The interview shows Simon and Jolie at various locations on the museum grounds. Simon's interview touches upon both Jolie's professional and personal life in order to give viewers an accurate portrait of the famous, and occasionally infamous, actress.

Even viewers who are acquainted with Jolie will learn from Simon's interview. Jolie discusses the difficulties she experienced writing and directing her first film. She emphasizes that though the film is set during the war in Bosnia, it's a love story, not a documentary.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is an American artist best known as a singer-songwriter, musician and actress. Born in Reading, Pennsylvania on December, 13, 1989, she wrote her first song when she was just ten-years old. She relocated with her family to Nashville at the age of 14, in doing so taking the first steps to stardom and becoming one of the most successful country-pop singers of recent times.

Trey Parker & Matt Stone

Steve Kroft led Parker and Stone down memory lane, where the two revealed that they attended film school together at the University of Colorado. They each possessed an edgy sense of humor – which could be grating to their fellow students. As Parker recounted, “Our senses of humor were just so similar that we would just really crack each other up and it got...annoying for everyone else in film school.”

But these two clowns took their work very seriously. While still in school, they raised enough money to make the feature film Cannibal! The Musical!

Lance Armstrong (Parts 1 & 2)

I've been aware of the various controversies surrounding Lance Armstrong for many years. Friends of mine, and various acquaintances, are cyclists. A couple of them were semi-pro in the eighties. They are all fiercely devoted to the sport. By that I mean they revere the process of cycling the practice, the technical details, the adventure, the community spirit and they honor those who take the sport to the next level, Eddy Merckx to site just one example.

Albert Pujols

Albert Pujols is the type of ballplayer who quietly goes about his business, which in his case means putting up offensive numbers unparalleled in baseball history. Thus far in his career, he has been a better hitter than baseball giants Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, and Babe Ruth.

Pujols is a franchise player, the kind who carries teams to world championships.

The Real Deal With Groupon

Mason says that they didn't report their numbers with an evil intent and that people make mistakes. Mason addresses the criticism, saying it hasn't been easy; however, in spite of it all, Groupon had a very successful opening day on Nasdaq. On that first day, Mason's personal worth went up to $1.3 billion.
