CBS and Bob Schieffer Can't Stand The Truth

The Following From: Independent Journal Review (video may take a moment to load)

Not only did Face the Nation‘s Bob Schieffer rudely interrupt Senator Ted Cruz, but CBS cut a major part of the interview from airing on Sunday – one that ‘just happened’ to be critical of President Obama ahead of his State of the Union address on Tuesday night. Senator Cruz discussed the IRS’ targeting of the Obama administration’s political enemies, which NY Senator Chuck Schumer recently advocated while imploring the IRS to double down on its efforts. This is no less than a call for legalized political suppression; the Democrats would leave radical groups like Organizing for America, the Open Society Institute, Tides Foundation, the Center for American Progress, and Media Matters unscathed while cracking down on their opposition. Furthermore, anti-Obama filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza was indicted for what appears to be funnelling $20,000 to a friend for a political campaign. This would be illegal activity, but the $500,000 bond for the act appears to be highly disproportional to the gravity of the infraction, which raises questions of political motivation. Senator Ted Cruz is right for alerting Americans that the Obama administration cannot be trusted with powerful agencies like the conservative-targeting IRS, the highly politicized Department of Justice, and the illegally snooping NSA. But when confronted with a Senator who is informing the public, CBS News believes it best that we all remain ignorant and ready to gush over yet another “uplifting” Obama speech, one filled with false promises and empty platitudes, that we’ve all seen numerous times before.
