60 Minutes

Yahoo Buzz claims that "60 Minutes" is on the rise in their search engine. This is interesting, and yet this might be an example why the reliance on search-engine querries is problematic.

60 Minutes is broadcasted on Yahoo! (cool!), and this might be the reason is gains search popularity there. Self-fulfilling search querry.

It could be also their claim that "Alexander Litvinenko planned to blackmail a Russian businessman living in London, says an acquaintance of the poisoned ex-spy. "
(Also see: "Ex-spy was involved in 'blackmail scheme'" )

Very good critique on this issue is available from La Russophobe: La Russophobe: TiVO Moment #1: Svetlichnaya on 60 Minutes last Sunday

In addition, it could be that their decision not to replace Ed Bradley has to do with these querries, although this is far-fetched.
