A particularly strong lineup for the venerable newsmagazine includes Scott Pelley’s interview with the whistleblower and former Facebook employee who has the documents to show how the social-media platform knowingly amplifies misinformation and polarizing hate speech with its algorithms. Expect to be moved by Anderson Cooper’s report on 95-year-old musical legend Tony Bennett, whose musical memory is somehow unaffected by Alzheimer’s as he prepares for his farewell concerts with Lady Gaga. A timely third segment features Lesley Stahl reporting on the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program, which military service members say is too mired in red tape.
