The September 30 broadcast of CBS' 60 Minutes featured an interview with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, which coincided with the October 1 release of his memoir, My Grandfather's Son (HarperCollins). During the interview, Thomas again denied Anita Hill's allegations in 1991 that he sexually harassed her, saying of Hill: "She was not the demure, religious, conservative person that they portrayed. That's not the person I knew." In October 1991, the Senate Judiciary Committee held hearings on Hill's allegations during Thomas' confirmation proceedings. 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft reported: "In the book, [Thomas] remembers Anita Hill as an average employee whose behavior could sometimes be irritating, rude, and unprofessional, which he attributed to her youth. He was asked to write a number of recommendations for her and helped advance her career, and he speculates that she got swept up in events and succumbed to a combination of ego, ambition, and immaturity." Kroft offered no challenge to Thomas, and CBS gave no indication that it had contacted Hill or anyone else to respond to him.
