Stewart Defense Questions Fed's Star Witness

Defense lawyers question the credibility of Daniel Faneuil, the prosecution's star witness in the Martha Stewart trial. The former Merrill Lynch broker's assistant says his boss asked him to tell Stewart that ImClone founder Sam Waksal's family was selling their shares in his company. Faneuil says he executed Stewart's order to sell her ImClone shares. NPR's Jim Zarroli reports.
