John's 2021 Auditions for 60 Minutes
Ever since Andy Rooney died in 2011, I have missed his editorials on 60 MInutes. I've written to CBS suggesting that they hire me to take the spot that used to be Andy's. For these samples, I edited some of my book chapters to less than 3 minutes. These were made without getting all my gear out of my storage space and hauling it upstairs. These were recorded with my iPad Mini that has a TelePrompter app and my Zoom recorder. I didn't light it, and the iPad TelePrompter app, while very nice, makes one look like he's not looking into the camera since the lens is on one side of the screen. If CBS hired me, I'd use my HD video camera and my real reflective glass TelePrompter.
