60 Minutes April 14 2024 CBS Stories – Scattered Spider, Knife, Tasmanian Tiger

This Sunday, April 14, 2024, “60 MINUTES” promises another riveting lineup of investigative journalism and compelling storytelling. Set to air from 7:00 to 8:00 PM ET/PT, right after The Masters Golf Tournament on the CBS Television Network, viewers can look forward to three thought-provoking segments.

Scattered Spider

First up, correspondent Bill Whitaker dives into the shocking cyberattack that paralyzed some of Las Vegas’ most iconic hotels and casinos. Dubbed “Scattered Spider,” this group of young hackers, predominantly from Western countries including the U.S., brought operations to a standstill and demanded an exorbitant ransom. Whitaker uncovers the details behind this brazen attack and its ties to the notorious Russian ransomware gang. Producer Graham Messick brings this story to life.

Knife

Next, in an exclusive interview, correspondent Anderson Cooper sits down with acclaimed author Salman Rushdie. Rushdie shares his harrowing experience of being attacked at a literary festival in Chautauqua, New York, nearly two years ago. Despite enduring 15 stab wounds and losing his right eye, Rushdie has found solace in writing about the ordeal in his latest book, “KNIFE.” Cooper delves into Rushdie’s journey from the fatwa issued against him 35 years ago to the near-fatal knife attack and his resilience in reclaiming his life. Producers Michael Gavshon and Nadim Roberts bring this powerful story to light.

 

Tasmanian Tiger

Lastly, correspondent Jon Wertheim travels to the Australian island of Tasmania to explore the mysterious case of the thylacine, also known as the Tasmanian tiger. Despite being declared extinct 40 years ago, local folklore and ongoing searches suggest that the elusive creature may still roam the island. Wertheim meets with researchers and enthusiasts who are determined to uncover the truth behind the Tasmanian tiger’s enduring legacy. Producer Jacqueline Williams brings this captivating tale to audiences.
