Should not Lesley Stahl and Lara Logan be designated hostesses, not hosts? The latter may be politically correct; but it's not grammatical English, conveys less information, and prima facie makes them seem male, which they're not — particularly relevant in the case of Lesley, since it forces the unfamiliar reader to go through the exercise of remembering which way the masculine and feminine versions of the name are spelled.

Basic principles of markedness at work: unmarked lion can refer to a male or female, while lioness is marked to refer only to females.[1] Lesley and Lara are hosts (perfectly grammatical in every way; test with the mixed plural: John, Lesley and Lara are hosts, marked only for plural, no gender marked), and it could be specified that they're hostesses if there's reason to. Are Streep and Hanks actors? Sure. Is Streep an actor? Sure. Is Hanks an actress? No way. -- Host/hostess or actor/actress are rather straightforward cases, fairly banal (as long as one steers clear of feminist theory), but there's at least one common instance that's interesting: What's the general singular of cattle, as in "There was a ____ in the road this morning."? The answer most often depends on one's experience. Urbanites usually have no problem using cow in that context regardless of the gender of the animal in view. Cattle ranchers can use non-gendered calf with ease if the critter is young enough, but with age comes gender relevance: cow, bull, heifer, steer. There is no singular unmarked for gender.

Are all of the deceased hosts Christian? If not, might there be a secular symbol other than a cross for designating which are deceased? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:42, 25 September 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What was the reason Leslie Stahl was so rude and disrespectful during her interview with the president. Her personal opinion should not be voiced. I thought she was a journalist. Not there to editorialize. Perhaps she’s getting to old to be working. Her waxed wig looks as phony as her attitude toward the president. She did not have anything to say about the Nobel Peace pride he was nominated For recently. Truth honesty and loyalty. Your personal hatred is showing. Biden has done so many illegal things. No mention of this. God help you for what you are trying to do to the country. Shame on your socialist agenda. SeniorAmerican45 (talk) 00:18, 26 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Looking for "List of 60 Minutes Episodes" is it just me or does this really not exist?[edit]

Am I missing something or does the List of 60 Minutes episodes really not exist?

If it's missing: is there a reason or just not yet undertaken?

If I just haven't found it. TIA and apologies for my oops. --CmdrDan (talk) 04:03, 2 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The basics of the episodes of the current Season 53 has been deleted because it didn't look as good as List of Game of Thrones episodes.--14Jenna7Caesura (talk) 00:15, 14 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Quick failing—the lead is inadequate given the size and content of the article, there are multiple "citation needed" tags, numerous unreferenced sentences, paragraphs, and even a section. Obviously it doesn't need to be perfect but I would expect a larger and broader ratings and recognition section given it has aired for over fifty years. The organization of sections is kind of weird as well. Overall, there is a lot of work to do that wouldn't be possible in a week or so, and I'm not convinced the nominator is up to it given they have never edited the article.
