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.
