The Ticker: CBS News, Webby Awards, Beck

  • CBS News will air the results of a six-month-long investigation on spinal-fusion surgery on tomorrow morning’s “CBS This Morning.” The investigation looked at government databases to see how often doctors have performed the surgeries, and what the results were.

  • The 18th Annual Webby Awards voting closes tomorrow, with this year’s winners set to be announced on April 28. Al Jazeera’s “The Stream,” “60 Minutes Overtime,” and CNN are some TV news outlets nominated for digital awards.

  • On his radio show today, Glenn Beck recounted an email from former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, apologizing for never thanking him for the gift–a first-edition copy of George Washington’s farewell address–Beck sent during the 2012 campaign. Romney’s reason for never sending a thank you note: his son never gave him the book.
