Last Sunday, Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer had Attorney General Eric Holder on for an entire half hour, and never once asked him about the Department of Justice dropping the case against the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation, or any of the subsequent events surrounding that story, including the DoJ whistleblower.
Shieffer was asked recently why he didn’t bring up the story about the whistleblower, and his answer was simple: He didn’t know about it. Why? Because he was on vacation the previous week.
Bob’s entire staff must have been on vacation as well. You’d think this would make CBS News execs ask themselves what they’re paying all those people for, but I’m not counting on it. There’s simply no way this was just “oversight.”
I’m just wondering how Schieffer knew to ask Holder seven questions concerning the Russian spy story. Bob couldn’t possibly have known about that because he was on vacation when the story broke — and we know this because the DoJ whistleblower story became common knowledge (everywhere except major television network newsrooms, apparently) the same week the Russian spy story broke.
Here’s Schieffer trying to explain. Video by way of Newsbusters:
That reminds me of Charlie Gibson saying he didn’t report the ACORN scandal because he didn’t know about it.
The great thing about being in the mainstream media is that you get to take plenty of vacations, even while you’re working.
Schieffer was on vacation in late July of 1969, so if anybody really wants to make his day, just let him know that we finally landed on the moon.
