CBS’ John Miller To Rejoin NYPD

CBS News correspondent John Miller confirmed Thursday that he is leaving the network to return to the New York City Police Department.

Miller previously worked in law enforcement in both the NYPD and the Los Angeles Police Department under Bill Bratton, who spent time at the helm of both agencies. New York City Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio tapped Bratton to return as chief of the NYPD in his incoming administration.

Miller’s law enforcement background has both facilitated and potentially conflicted with his reporting. His “60 Minutes” segment on the National Security Agency drew criticism earlier this month when critics wondered whether Miller, who also served as an official in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and as a spokesman for the FBI, took it easy on his interview subjects.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
