Rita Braver on Her 50 Years at CBS News

From a story on cbsnews.com headlined “Rita Braver on her 50 years at CBS News”:

It is exactly 50 years ago today that I started working for CBS News.

It also happened to be the day that Alabama Governor George Wallace, segregationist candidate for president, was the victim of an assassination attempt.  CBS turned out to be the only network to get that footage, thanks to the intuition of one of our veteran cameramen, and I watched in awe as the best news organization in the business sprang into action.
