60 Minutes: Mr. Snow Goes to Washington (CBS)




60 Minutes: Mr. Snow Goes to Washington
Winner 1988 | CBS News

60 Minutes: Mr. Snow Goes To Washington is an exceptional example of what can be achieved when a dedicated person who will not take “no” for an answer is joined by a national news team fully capable of highlighting and reporting the most important facets of a campaign for increased child safety. This 60 Minutes report achieved two significant ends: it created a heightened sense of public awareness about the dangers of metallic darts (particularly to children) and it resulted in national legislation which, it is hoped, has removed the source of the hazard from store shelves throughout the country. A Peabody Award to CBS News for 60 Minutes: Mr. Snow Goes To Washington.
