    BOB SCHIEFFER: People often ask me, “Of all the administrations you’ve covered, which was the most secretive and manipulative?" The Nixon Administration retired the trophy, of course. Since then my answer is which ever administration is currently in power.

    Information management has become so sophisticated every administration learns from the previous one. Each finds new ways to control the flow of information. It’s reached the point that if I want to interview anyone in the administration on camera—from the lowest-level worker to a White House official—I have to go through the White House Press Office. If their chosen spokesman turns out to have no direct connection to the story of the moment—as was the case when U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice was sent out to explain the Benghazi episode—then that’s what we, and you the taxpayer, get, and it usually isn’t much.

    So I am glad the President has asked the Attorney General to review whether his investigations into leaks is having a chilling effect on journalists. But it shouldn’t stop there. The President needs to rethink his entire communications policy top to bottom. It is hurting his credibility and shortchanging the public. And to head the review, how about someone other than the Attorney General whose department is so deeply involved? That makes no sense to me.

    "Chilling effect?"

    The manner in which these syncophants are pretending to come down on the Marxist in the White House is nothing less than pornographic. Schieffer needs to wipe his chin.

    How about "unconstitutional," "criminal," or "treasonous?"

    So you want Ole Bob to come right out and say that & then appear partisan? Really, do you think he is ready to jeopardize that cake job he has & move back to Texas....I dont think so.

    Now, now - let us not forget: The media is trying to figure out how to react after they found out their golden child, the person they've placed on such a high pedestal, the one for which they ensured received as much positive and as little negative news reporting as possible, has stabbed them in the back....

    And is everyone frustrated and tired of hearing "I know/knew nothing about this" (whatever "this" happens to be today) from the president on down?

    Im not an expert by a long shot but in the UK, would not a political figure be brought in front of the government, allowed to present his excuse for being a disingenuous piece of crud & then voted in or out without awaiting the term limit? I personally like that....you get caught with your hands in the cookie jar, then ousted by a "NO CONFIDENCE VOTE" then bounced out of office without much ceremony!:thumbs:
