Left on the Cutting Room Floor

We watched the CBS TV '60 Minutes' interview with Putin last night.  Charlie Rose was arrogant, insulting, and ignorant in his questioning of the Russian president.
Above is one part of the interview that didn't make it into the official '60 Minutes' segment, I'd say one of the more important parts of the interview.
Instead what '60 Minutes' decided to air were the idiotic questions like, "Are you a czar?  Are you a gangster? Why do you ride horses without a shirt on?"  Typical US mainstream media tactics to further demonize Putin.
Thanks to RT for providing us with one the best parts of the interview.

When Putin got specific about the U.S. activity in ousting Yanoukovych from Ukraine, 60 Minutes couldn't take the challenge and criticism and had to interject a comment outside the interview format in the line of "For the record, the U.S. has denied any involvement with the removal of the Ukrainian leader." I guess Putin got a bit too close to home.
