Top CBS News Anchor Slammed For ‘Bashing’ Faith

A coalition of Christian leaders is asking CBS President David Rhodes to publicly apologize for “sloppy journalism” by host Bob Schieffer on “Face the Nation” a week ago.

A letter to Rhodes has been signed by Edwin Meese of the Conservative Action Project; Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List; J. Kenneth Blackwell, formerly of the U.N. Human Rights Commission; Lt. Gen. William Boykin of Family Research Council; Tim Wildmon of American Family Association; David Bossie of Citizens United; Douglas Napier of Alliance Defending Freedom; Herman Cain of The New Voice; and Penny Nancy of Concerned Women for America.

Schieffer’s interview with Tony Perkins of FRC centered on the Supreme Court’s hearing on same-sex “marriage.”

“This past Sunday, Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, appeared as a guest on ‘Face the Nation’ with CBS’s Bob Schieffer to discuss the Supreme Court same-sex marriage case,” the letter explains. “Schieffer said that he was inundated by requests that Perkins be disinvited because they believe ‘you [Perkins] don’t speak for Christians.’

“The interview was more than sloppy journalism. It was an assault against Judeo-Christian people of faith,” the letter states.

“The work that FRC and its president Tony Perkins do to promote healthy families and traditional values is irreplaceable in our culture. To suggest, as Schieffer did, that FRC doesn’t represent Christians flies in the face of reality. The millions of Americans that we, the undersigned, collectively represent are proof of that.”

As WND reported, Schieffer confronted Perkins with the Southern Law Poverty Center’s claim that FRC is a “hate” group.

What Schieffer left out was the fact that SPLC was named by a convicted domestic terrorist as the source of his information for what was intended to be a mass murder attack on FRC.
