Rooney Hospitalized After Surgery

Legendary news commentator Andy Rooney, who signed off from 60 Minutes earlier this month after 33 years and more than 1,000 broadcasts, has been hospitalized after suffering complications from minor surgery he underwent last week. CBS announced that Rooney, 92, is currently in stable condition, though the reason for surgery and nature of the complications were not disclosed. His family has asked that their privacy be respected during this tough time.
