More recently, CBS News has found itself at the center of coverage of the September 11 terrorist attacks, the Haiti earthquake, the financial crisis, the aftermath of the Tsunami in Japan and the rise of the Occupy movement. Through it all, CBS News teams around the globe provide in-depth, impartial coverage of breaking and current news stories.
