If there has ever been a villain, it is Edwards. But the veteran correspondent of CBS known for his lefty bias, Bob Schieffer has been adroit in finding reasons not to investigate charges that verified by others became indisputably true.
When he dies, Schieffer ought to be mummified and sent to stand in a celluloid tube at the Library of Congress—labeled Prototypical Example of the Liberal Journalist Who Has Misrepresented the Truth or Spiked It in Washington—genus Bob Schieffer CBS. “It never occurred to him that by smothering inconvenient news to the liberal establishment he was doing wrong.”
Then written on the celluloid tube’s base would be what Schieffer told Don Imus after the John Edwards story broke in a source liberals find unpretty—the National Enquirer.
“Well you know, I saw that this morning [the Enquirer story about the liaison and the illegitimate baby]. I believe that—I believe that’s a story we will be avoiding because it appears to me that there’s absolutely nothing to it. I’m told that another—a man says that the child is his [the aide Edwards hired to take the heat for Edwards]. So I guess—I guess we’re going to pass on that. Unless you can come up with some new information on this, Don.”
