Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers recently complained about how CBS’s 60 Minutes left some things out of their recent profile of him. 60 Minutes has released a statement in reply to Rodger’s criticism. “Aaron Rodgers was never taken out of context and most anybody portrayed as he was on ‘60 Minutes’ would have been flattered by the story,” said Jeff Fager, the CBS News chairman and executive producer of “60 Minutes,” in a statement. ”It was fair and accurate and it was obvious we got it right when we reported that he tends to be overly sensitive.” Well, take that Aaron.  Would love hear his response to this statement from CBS.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
