    Scott Pelley is the Number one Journalist in our family. I watch him every night on the CBS Evening News and on 60 Minutes. Scott is the best I’ve ever seen on any news station. CBS is lucky to have him as their News Reporter.

    I hope Scott makes it to Number One. I tell all my family and friends to watch Scott Pelley. He’s the BEST!

    I agree with SweetPlum. I will watch more of the CBS evening news from now on because of Scott Pelley.
