Bob Schieffer Makes Big Retirement Admission About Obama & The Media

CBS’ Bob Schieffer signed off from Face the Nation today and sat down with Fox News’ Howard Kurtz to share his thoughts on the changing media landscape and whether the media has certain pro-establishment or pro-Democratic biases. Schieffer said that maybe people like him were too cozy with people in power, but at least back in the days when that was prevalent, people knew each other, were friendly to each other, and “the town worked a lot better.” Kurtz asked him if the media gave Obama an “incredibly easy ride” when he first appeared on the national stage. Schieffer admitted the political world was rather struck by how dynamic a figure Obama was and conceded, “Maybe we were not skeptical enough.”
