"Schieffer: Kerry and Bin Laden Expressed “Almost The Same” Sentiments"

Today, CBS’ Bob Schieffer borrowed a page from Chris Matthews. NewsMax reports:

Asked whether bin Laden had expressed “almost the same” sentiments that [Sen. John] Kerry did during an appearance on [Bob] Schieffer’s “Face the Nation” broadcast in December, the CBS anchorman told WABC Radio’s Mark Simone: “Well, he did. That’s exactly right.”

Neither Schieffer nor Matthews bill themselves as right-wing propagandists. They are, by their own descriptions, journalists. Yet, over the past few days, they have said things about prominent liberals that would make Karl Rove blush.

You can contact Bob Schieffer here and Chris Matthews here. Please be polite.
