The 11 March 2016 edition of CBS Evening News gave a one-sided preview of a euthanasia segment on an upcoming episode of 60 Minutes. The nearly two-minute long segment from Dr. Jon LaPook featured two of the most prominent supporters of euthanasia proponent Brittany Maynard — her husband, Dan Diaz, and the doctor who prescribed the lethal drugs she used to kill herself in November 2014. Scott Pelley noted that Dr. LaPook's 60 Minutes report would feature "the opponents of physician-assisted suicide," but failed to includes soundbites from these opponents during the preview on the evening newscast.
