    In an interview with Al Jazeera America's John Seigenthaler, CBS 60 Minutes correspondent Bob Simon spoke out in support of the Al Jazeera journalists currently imprisoned in Egypt.

    Simon described the journalists as being held "hostage" because, he said, the Egyptian government had not come up with any credible charges against them, in Thursday's interview.
