Future CBS Anchor Applies Ideological Tag to Republican, Not Dem
Bob Schieffer, soon-to-assume the anchor chair of the CBS Evening News, as host of Face the Nation on Sunday applied an ideological label to Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina while failing to apply one to Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton of New York. Graham and Clinton appeared together on the show, sitting side-by-side, from Baghdad. Schieffer introduced his guests as “Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton, conservative Republican Senator Lindsey Graham.”
