60 Minutes to look at journalist's killing

A 60 Minutes alert

In the second segment, CNN correspondent Anderson Cooper looks into a reporter’s murder. Editor Chauncey Bailey was shot-gunned to death for what police believe was an effort to quash his story about “Your Black Muslim Bakery,” an Oakland, Calif., organization police have tied to murder and rape. This week Bailey was honored, posthumously, with journalism's prestigious George Polk award, named for CBS News correspondent George Polk, who was killed covering the Greek civil war in 1948.
