Headlines From Ukraine

Holly Williams reports the latest from Ukraine as Russia continues its invasion.

The Grid

As tensions with Russia intensify, Bill Whitaker investigates threats to the U.S. electric grid. Extreme weather, cyber-attacks, sabotage, and physical assaults have taken down parts of the grid. Recently, the Department of Homeland Security issued two urgent warnings to utilities to brace for potential cyber-attacks from Russia if it invaded Ukraine, and from home-grown extremists too, citing specific plans by white supremacists to physically attack U.S. substations. Many plots trace back to a still-unsolved physical attack near San Jose, Calif., in 2013.

Multiple Detainees

Lesley Stahl reports on Americans unjustly imprisoned abroad, held by foreign governments with whom the United States has thorny, or in some cases, no relations. Our government calls them “wrongful detainees,” and there are currently more than 40 of them. Danny Fenster, a Detroit native who had been locked away for nearly six months in Myanmar, was released this fall after efforts by former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson. Stahl interviews Fenster, Richardson, and the State Department official who is tasked with bringing Americans home.

Shari Finkelstein is the producer.

Headlines, Deadlines, Bottom Lines

Jon Wertheim reports on how hedge funds and other financial firms have swallowed up newspapers, closing newsrooms and slashing staff. 60 MINUTES looks at a local news landscape where headlines and deadlines have given way to bottom lines. Katie Brennan and Denise Schrier Cetta are the producers.

    DiscussPW is a mix of Pro Wrestling and Entertainment. The site was started in 2016 and has gone through many changes over the years. Our main focus was events and tickets, but then the pandemic happened. We had to mix things up and will now be doing a lot more news. Events will still be covered, just as news instead of on a calendar. This site had an extensive events calendar, which we have moved away from. Pro wrestling has always been our main thing, we also do a lot of entertainment though. For example, we post movie trailers, tv previews and other kinds of news. We have a few discussions but strongly encourage comments on all of our posts. Be sure to keep things civil while commenting. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us above.
