CBS’s Face the Nation Bob Schieffer on Not Asking the New Black Panther Party Question to Holder … “I Didn’t know about it, I was on Vacation”
Simply incredible and rather unbelievable … the excuses the MSM will come up with rather than admit they are bias.
According to CBS’s “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer, he did not ask the question of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation/DOJ case to Eric Holder because “he did not about it”because the previous week he had been on vacation. ARE YOU SERIOUS? That begs the question, was his staff on vacation to? Does anyone really believe that Schieffer does not have a staff that researches stories and events in the news?
It might also beg the question and ask was the rest of the state run media on vacation too as to why they did not cover the story of Eric Holder and the DOJ dropping and already won case of voter intimidation against the NBPP?
Watch the CNN interview with Bob Schieffer via NewsBusters and see just how not believable his explanation is.
Chatting with Howard Kurtz on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” Schieffer said, “This all really became a story when the whistleblower came out and testified that he’d had to leave the Justice Department and so on. And, frankly, had I known about that, I would have asked the question.”
KURTZ: Let’s start with the obvious question. Why did you not ask Eric Holder in that interview about this former Justice official’s allegation that a case against the New Black Panther Party was dropped because of racial politics?
SCHIEFFER: Well, it’s certainly a question that is a legitimate question to ask. And basically what happened was this all really became a story when the whistleblower came out and testified that he’d had to leave the Justice Department and so on. And, frankly, had I known about that, I would have asked the question.
I was on vacation that week. This happened — apparently, it got very little publicity. And, you know, I just didn’t know about it.
I mean, you know, God knows everything, but I’m not quite that good. Every once in a while, something will slip by me. And in this case, it just slipped by me. If I’d have known it, I would have asked about it.
Isn’t it convenient that the MSM always has an excuse when it comes to not covering a story that might be damaging to Obama? How was Bob Schieffer able to cover any news story on his show last weekend and ask Holder the questions he did? The Russian spy case broke the same week as the Holder/NBPP one. How was Schieffer able to muster those questions?
This lame excuse certainly reminds us all when former ABC “World News” host Charlie Gibson said nothing last year because he wasn’t aware of the charges against ACORN. Of course where was CNN covering the NBPP – voter intimidation case as well.
So the excuse of the MSM is, we are not bias … JUST INCOMPETENT!

They did not want to know about it. Nor did they want to know about Rev. Wright’s bigotry and racism. They only want to atack the Tea Party people and American’s that are getting D@mn concerned over the corruption perceived and real in the current administration.
Obama could certain use that excuse…..often.
Bob Schieffer doing damage control. Did he know?
Was he out to lunch? Out of town? Or Holder controlled the interview?
We are surrounded by Idiots.
I think its time for this old fool to retire.
It really doesn’t matter if he was on vacation or not. The Bush Justice Department downgraded the charges on these scary black panthers days before Obama took office. So, GW is to blame. I dont see what all the fuss is about. The black panthers were demonstrating in front of a precinct that is predominantly Democratic and black. ITs not like some good ole white Republicans were afraid for their lives and scared to go vote. LOL. Leave it to you to resurrect something from 2 years ago and make a big deal of it. Desperate
SM: BTW, you do realize we know you are posting as two different people under the same IP, right Ruth Less!
Grow up, you certainly provide yourself no credibilty when doing this, just prove you are a troll.
SM: Sorry, but the audiences reaction just might be the story here. Sorry if the LEFT wants to disregard the fact that the organization who wants to brand others as racist, were acting racist themself.
Also, just curious … how did the Obama folks not vet this person and know about this in advance if it happened so long ago and was something that profoundly shaped her?
So with her firing, is the LEFT admitting that cries of racism are met with knee jerk reactions of firing?
It works both ways.
OMG! Still blaming Bush…can’t you people buy a clue? This happened during the 2008 elections. It is not okay to intimidate anyone at the polls. You guys are pathetic at best.
When all else fails lets blame Bush. Brain-dead zombies
Reaching really deep now aren’t you?
#6 – you are truly a libtard and I’m guessing probably no older than 25 years old and just goes to show once again your total ignorance to the issue(s).
Who cares if this was done in a predominately black area of Philly? There were people afraid and intimidated to vote or to even enter that voting place. The problem is fool, that if they can get away from voter intimidation, violate civil rights of others all the while brandishing a WEAPON; then it could be done whenever/wherever.
You do realize idiot savante; that the thug brandishing the weapon has also BEEN ON RECORD as saying they needed to kill white babies? Of course you omit that from your lame MSNBC talking points no thought of your own post.
Red; this woman’s firing WAS a knee-jerk reaction by the WH, just like the “beer summit.” It’s called; the WH trying to save face amongst their other racial based issues such as illegal immigration; the NAACP labeling Tea Partiers as racist; etc….
What kind of LOSER posts under two different names? What an idiot!
