FLASHBACK: CBS GOP Debate Host Told Obama TO DESTROY THE GOP IN 2013

Dickerson

How can Republicans get a fair debate when almost everyone who works in media is a hardcore leftist? The simple answer is, they can’t.

John Dickerson, who moderated last night’s GOP debate, once advised Obama to destroy Republicans.

Ed Driscoll of PJ Media reported:

New Host of Face the Nation Advised Obama in 2013 to ‘Destroy the GOP’

John Dickerson, replacing Bob Schieffer as the new host of Face the Nation, will continue the same level of objectivity that CBS has brought to viewers for half a century. In 1964, when CBS was one third of all television news, Walter Cronkite and Daniel Schorr repeatedly smeared Barry Goldwater as a crypto-Nazi. His successor, Dan Rather, blew himself up in spectacular fashion with RatherGate in 2004, as dissected by all those bloggers in their Pajamas, to coin a Website name. In 2007, Rather’s successor, Scott Pelley, violating 32 flavors of Godwin’s Law in the same fashion as Cronkite, “was asked why he refused to include global warming skeptics in his reporting. He responded, ‘If I do an interview with [Holocaust survivor] Elie Wiesel, am I required as a journalist to find a Holocaust denier?'”, asNewsBusters noted.

All of which is why, as John Nolte wrote in 2013 at Big Journalism, “Reading the Left’s fevered desires over at Slate isn’t anything new:”

Not even articles breathlessly titled and subtitled:

Go for the Throat! Why if he wants to transform American politics, Obama must declare war on the Republican Party.

Not even articles that read:

The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat. …

When does Rush Limbaugh get to moderate a Democrat debate?

Answer: Never.
