Tales From the Booth isn't just about sports. It's about journalism and history and audio of interest. Today, Rob Adams talks with Scott Pelley of 60 Minutes and CBS News. Mr. Pelley has a new book out -- Truth Worth Telling: A Reporter's Search for Meaning in the Stories of Our Times -- and he discusses various topics of interest. Rob and Scott touch on September 11, 2001 along with advice for young journalists, history and great journalism, modern journalism and more.
