In 1995 she was removed as CBS Evening News co-anchor after a controversial interview with a fireman which seemed inappropriately combative, during rescue efforts at the Oklahoma City bombing and her interview tactics to get Newt Gingrich's mother to admit her unguarded thoughts about Hillary Clinton.
