Maury Povich reflects: "Covering the fall of the Berlin Wall was the greatest moment I have spent in all story-telling of my career"

On Thursday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed Maury Povich and Connie Chung for an honest and engaging sit down interview.

Boasting 75 years of combined television experience, the husband and wife duo shared their journalism memories:

"Covering the fall of the Berlin Wall was the greatest moment I have spent in all story-telling of my career," shared the host of "Maury". "It was something that...I never thought would happen, I wouldn't have thought it would happen in my children's lifetime."

Chung meanwhile, an alum of such television news networks as NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, and MSNBC, recalls one particular visit to Pennsylvania Avenue, during the height of the Watergate scandal:

"I was walking into the White House, the West Wing, where the press entrance is, and he's there," says Chung of then-president Richard Nixon. "I started asking him questions. It was fascinating, because the Secret Service kept everybody else back. I kept asking him Watergate questions, and he wouldn't answer. The only thing he said to me was: 'How much money do you make?'"

Watch the clips, and listen to the interview, as Chung and Povich further explain their lives in front of cameras, and behind anchor desks.

    Last night was the last night I'll be watching the Piers Morgan show. I couldn't believe my ears and had to look over at my husband to make sure I'd heard rightly that he actually said... 'for Christ's sake'! I so miss Larry King's class. There's no mistaking Piers position in the way he attacks his guests and misrepresents them, totally no toleration of anyone with a differing view. To 'tolerate' means to have a differing view, but to show respect for the person who differs with your own view. I liked Larry King's unbiased, truly interesting interviews with people that he may have disagreed with but was truly a gentleman in his questions. They don't make them like that any more.

      If you want a wood floor you can build a deck floor inside the shed. You can do it two ways. The first thing is to pack down the soil first. If you level the guornd out at this juncture, it will make the rest easier. Adding stone to it first couldn't hurt. 1. attach 2 10 joists to the inside perimeter of the shed. You can get them in 10 foot lengths. Drill holes in the shed walls and joists and run deck bolts through to attach the wood to the wall. Then place joists every 16 inches on center across (you can probably get away with 24 inches since it will pretty much sit on the guornd) using metal joist hangers and then deck it out with plywood. Use pressure treated lumber.2. If you don't want to attach anything to the shed walls you can buy concrete supports sold at any home improvement store in the deck section that sit in the guornd and hold the frame and joists and then add the joists and plywood using the same procedure. Since the frame will not reach to the walls, you can overhang the plywood those few inches to reach the walls. Although easier to do, the down side would be shifting in the guornd and the deck and shed will move separately so over time the floor could become uneven with the walls of the shed. Don't forget to level the deck out while you are framing.Although a wood deck does take more time, it is beneficial if you want to attach anything to the floor for any reason.You can also attach studs to the walls in the same bolting fashion if you want to hang wood or other things on the wall for storage. Make sure you caulk around the exterior bolts to prevent leakage.

    The brave troops of WW II did not have cmarea crews following them all over the place. And in WW II the cmarea crews supported the troops and the war and did not go out of their way to embarrass the troops or make them look bad. Today the networks are a bunch of flaming liberals who will do whatever it takes to improve their ratings and further their cut and run agenda.Perhaps you should ask why are new reporters of today such jerks and not professionals like they were in WW Two.
