CBS’ ’60 Minutes’ To Profile Bono’s Efforts to Involve Conservative Christians in Global HIV/AIDS Fight
CBS' "60 Minutes" on Sunday is scheduled to air a segment profiling Irish musician Bono -- who co-founded the AIDS, debt relief and trade advocacy group DATA -- and his efforts to involve conservative Christians in his work to fight HIV/AIDS worldwide. In the interview, Bono says he was "very angry" that conservative Christians were "not involved more in the AIDS emergency," and told them they were "ignoring" the situation. According to Bono, his strategy worked and "they said, 'Well, you're right, actually ... and we're sorry. We'll get involved.' And they did" (Bradley, "60 Minutes," CBS, 11/20). A partial transcript and video preview of the segment in RealPlayer are available online.This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
