Connie Chung Talks News, Family And Fighting With Humor

Host Michel Martin has a "Wisdom Watch" conversation with Connie Chung, whose award-winning broadcast news career began in 1969. Chung is the first Asian and the second woman to become a nightly news anchor at a major network. She talks about rising in a field where women and minorities were discriminated against. She also reflects on her mistakes, controversial interviews, and desire to make something of the "Chung" family name.
