Net Worth: View Morley Safer Net Worth

Morley Safer, a reporter and television correspondent most famous for his work on the CBS evening newsmagazine program 60 Minutes who has a net worth of $10 million. Morley Safer accumulated this net worth through many years in both print journalism and on TV. Safer's career began in his native Canada, where he reported for various newspapers including the Woodstock Sentinel Review, the London Free Press and the Toronto Telegram. He also got jobs writing for English news service Reuters during this early phase of his career. Soon, Safer found his calling in television, getting a job as a correspondent and producer on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. From there, he quickly moved on to CBS, first as a London correspondent and then as the network's first correspondent in Saigon. It was during his time in the Saigon bureau that he filed a controversial TV report that depicted US troops in Vietnam torching a village that was ostensibly full of innocent civilians. It was one of the first TV reports that showed the bleak and untenable situation in Vietnam, and some credit it for stoking antiwar feeling in the United States (although it would still be several years before US withdrawal from Vietnam). Since those early days, Safer has become a fixture on 60 Minutes, where he continues to file reports to this day.
Morley Safer (born November 8, 1931) is a Canadian reporter and correspondent for CBS News. He is best known for his long tenure on the newsmagazine 60 Minutes, the cast of which he joined in December 1970, during the third season of the series.
Safer was born to an Austrian Jewish family in Toronto, Ontario, the son of Anna (nee Cohn) and Max Safer, an upholsterer. He attended Harbord Collegiate Institute, and briefly attended University of Western Ontario.
Safer began his journalism career as a reporter for various newspapers in Canada (Woodstock Sentinel Review, London Free Press and Toronto Telegram) and England (Reuters and Oxford Mail). Later, he joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a correspondent and producer.
In 1964, Safer joined CBS News as a London-based correspondent. In 1965, he opened the CBS News bureau in Saigon. That year he followed a group of United States Marines to the village of Cam Ne, for what was described as a "search and destroy" mission. When the Marines arrived, they gave orders in English to the inhabitants--by all accounts harmless civilians--to evacuate the village. When the homes were cleared, the Marines burned their thatched roofs with flamethrowers and Zippo lighters. Safer's report on this event was broadcast on CBS News on August 5, 1965, and was among the first reports to paint a bleak picture of the Vietnam War. President Lyndon Baines Johnson reacted to this report angrily, calling CBS's president and accusing Safer and his colleagues of having "shat on the American flag." Certain that Safer was a communist, Johnson also ordered a security check; upon being told that Safer "wasn't a communist, just a Canadian," he responded "Well, I knew he wasn't an American."
In 1967, Safer was named the London bureau chief, a post he held for three years. In 1970, he left London to replace Harry Reasoner on 60 Minutes, after Reasoner left to anchor the ABC Evening News (although Reasoner would return to 60 Minutes i
