"60 Minutes" unimpressed with Code scholarship

By Diogenes ( articles ) | May 01, 2006

In The Da Vinci Code, novelist Dan Brown spins a long story about the "Priory of Sion," an alleged secret society that has been guarding secrets across the centuries.

Interesting stuff, huh? The people at "60 Minutes" thought so, and the investigators from CBS-TV decided to probe the background of the Priory of Sion.

They did indeed find a good story. But it wasn't about a secret society. In fact the exact words used by "60 Minutes" could be applied to many other aspects of The Da Vinci Code. What the TV journalists uncovered was "not some ancient, mysterious treasure-- but good old-fashioned fraud."
