CBSís Bob Schieffer Interviews Dem. Elijah Cummings, Ignores His Relationship With Lois Lerner
Newsbusters ^ | April 13, 2014 | By Jeffrey Meyer

Posted on 04/13/2014 4:09:20 PM PDT by Lazamataz

... Instead of asking Congressman Cummings about this damaging new report surrounding the IRS scandal, Schieffer ignored the entire issue, and focused on ObamaCare and equal pay for women for the entirety of the interview.

The CBS host even falsely claimed that the GOP did not support equal pay for women: “Marsha Blackburn says Republicans are actually for equal pay for women. But yet, it was blocked in the Senate by Republicans…What is going on here?”

Given that Schieffer had the opportunity to interview the ranking Democrat on the committee leading the IRS investigation, it would have made sense to ask Cummings about the scandal, or the Democrats' questionable relationship with IRS agents.

Odd, last I heard, the Democrats controlled the Senate.
Or did I miss something?

When liberals bark out the equal pay issue, I respond with the obvious solution.

That being just reduce all men's pay to that of the underpaid women. They do not know what to say in every case.

Isn't that the liberal mantra? Take from those who have to fund those who need?

You are guaranteed to be the most hated person in a room full of liberals.

Laz, say it ain’t so.

The word is out on Freepmail that you’d hit on Lois Lerner.

What’s next? Sebilius?

Save yourself, man!

Shieffer: “Marsha Blackburn says Republicans are actually for equal pay for women. But yet, it was blocked in the Senate by Republicans…What is going on here?”

TRANSLATION

Shieffer: “Republicans are EVIL. They HATE WOMEN. I am going to ignore ALL the facts and declare them RESPONSIBLE for failing to advance legislation that has been on the books for decades already, in a house that is controlled by DEMOCRATS, while asking this question of a person CLEARLY CRIMINALLY INVOLVED in the very investigation the House Committee is investigating — and curiously avoid asking the person anything about that. Instead, we will sit here and cackle on about how Republicans hate women. BAN BOSSY!”

I didn't watch him, but I caught wind of the fact he had Cummings on, and not one word about the criminal conflict of interest. I had to see if Shieffer was indeed that bad.

He was.

They don’t even try to hide their bias any more.

I bet Cummings wanted to screen the questions prior to interview.

They gave up hiding back in 2000, or maybe earlier. Now they are proudly biased, and each try to outdo one another.

Who watches the doormat schieffer?

Too many low information voters -- they're who his "interviews" are designed to misinform. He's been carrying water for the Left since he got the host job.

Cummings probably only agreed to the interview on the condition that Schieffer NOT ask those questions.

Schieffer is an old-line Fort Worth Democrat a la Jim Wright, but Fort Worth is the only city proper in TX that remains Repoublican despite the “popular” Wendy Davis.

The Schieffmeister is just doing his job, i.e., preserving the ignorance of the Obama electorate.

I will never waste my time watching that FRAUD Schieffer again .

Unbelievable that he would not bring up the allegations the degenerate crook Cummings conspired with Lerner against True the Vote.

He's either SENILE and doesn't even know about it, or he is part of the conspiracy.

I thought the point of having the marxist simpleton on in the first place was to discuss this at least in part.

DEGENERATE PROPAGANDISTS AT CBS.

Nope. Never happened, according to Schieffer.

It should be “Democrat Party activist Bob Schieffer, appearing on ‘Face the Nation’...”. Of course, if he had asked Cummings about Lois Lerner, he would have been accused of being a racist, and ol’ Bob would never risk that.

I saw it - it was ‘ guilty white liberal begging to kiss black butt’. Easily the most disgusting thing I’ve seen this year. It degrades both men.
