Lesley Stahl was first hired by CBS News in 1972, the very day that affirmative action was passed, and she's seen her industry go through many transitions in the 40 years since. At this Wednesday's Open VISIONS Forum at Fairfield U, she'll recount anecdotes from her two decades of covering the White House during the Carter, Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations, big stories like Watergate, the Iranian hostage crisis and Iran-Contra, and her experiences as co-editor of "60 Minutes" (a position she still holds). Moderating will be Dr. James Simon, a former AP reporter who created the journalism program at Fairfield University.
