There's something kind of awesome about Mike Wallace's questioning of Roger Clemens on "60 Minutes," set to air this Sunday. Clemens uses the tired, repeatedly discredited "it was just B-12!" alibi, and boy, does Wallace ever get after him.
Here's the transcript:
When asked by Wallace if McNamee had ever injected him with any drugs, Clemens responds: "Lidocaine and B-12. It's for my joints, and B-12 I still take today."
Clemens calls the accusation "ridiculous" and says he "never" used any banned substances.
"Swear?" asks Wallace.
"[I] swear," says Clemens.
See, now this is how you become a legend in the world of journalism: By asking probing questions like that one. We respect Wallace's ability to resist following up with "pinkie swear?"
