I had to switch channels when you did the feature on Cuban barbecue featurnung a cooked 5 lb. sucking piglet....I find eating baby animals offensive and a bad commentary on mankind. Please be more sensitive to those of us who share this opinion.
I just watched Sunday Morning and I really do like the show. BUT, I heard something that just bugs me. The president should always be addressed as "President Obama", not "Mr. Obama". When the president is disrespectfully referred to as 'Mr.', it shows a news slant that is obvious and undesirable. Even retired presidents are addressed as 'President'. Come on, quit trying to degrade the president and be sure to respect his official title. This happens frequently on FOX channels. Shame on the commentators who do this and shame on the their writers for allowing it.
This is one of very few shows that I watch every week and record if I can't be home to see it. Great reporting, with a friendly and casual approach.
There's a delightful variety in the style and approach of each of the regular correspondents, and the subject matter runs the gamut from world news to environmental issues to arts & entertainment. And, regardless of the topic, the quality of each segment is very high.
By the way, I always look forward to the 'outro' segment... the nature shots. Very nice way to close out each episode. Please add full episodes here on tv.com. I would love to be able to not worry about needing to record it when I can't be home to watch it live.
Sunday morning is a great alternative to those other news shows that have pundits yelling at each other over political issues. Done in documentary style, each piece is a gem within itself. The focus on the arts is wonderful. Artists, musicians and singers are showcased in an indepth way not seen in the modern "soundbite" age. Each CBC anchor/reporter can do a story on something of interest to them. Filled with trivia and Americana stories, each show is a keeper. No "indepth" news about trying to trap wrong-doers such as "60 minutes", this is a kinder, gentler news program. You'll find many people that never get featured and that truly contribute great things to the world here. Give it a try!
I've been watching CBS Sunday Morning for years and years, starting back in the 1990's when I lived in Europe. Back then, we'd watch it live at 3PM which was 9AM in New York. We didn't get a lot of life broadcasts other than CNN back then, so it was a real thrill. During Charles Kuralt's years, the show was really folksy and down-to-earth, featuring "postcards from ..." segments, from a couple of different guys in their parts of the country. I remember the Postcard from Nebraska with Roger Welsch (with whom I still correspond) and the Postcard from Maine with, I think, Tim Sample. Occasionally, Mr. Kuralt himself went on the road and did some pieces, all of which offered the viewer a slice of average American life. I have nothing against Charles Osgood personally, but he is not the host that Kuralt was. Producers and directors have changed, as has management, and the show, while interesting, doesn't have the charm (for lack of a better word) that it did during Mr. Kuralt's tenure. I don't watch it all the time now, but I'll sometimes TiVo it so I can fast-forward through the topics that don't interest me.
