Post Don Hewitt Revolutionized Television 
http://www.usatoday.com/life/television/news/2009-08-19-hewitt-obit_N.htm

Don Hewitt, the creator of CBS Television's "60 Minutes", was a pioneering figure in American television. Long before many of today's expose style programs, "60 Minutes" was a hard hitting investigative production that struck fear into the hearts of people who were in their crosshairs, and employed some outstanding journalists that broke a number of major stories to the American public. The show was also balanced by some very touching features of people and institutions that worked well.

Hewitt's vision was one that showed how the television medium can indeed be used to serve the public interest.
