The transformation of ’60 Minutes’ — now the place for swooning, softball interviews

CBS News’ Steve Kroft made a statement Monday that totally epitomizes liberal media bias in the modern era.

Speaking to CNN’s Piers Morgan about his interview with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the previous evening’s “60 Minutes,” Kroft said the president likes doing his show because “he knows that we’re not going to play gotcha with him”:

Playing “gotcha” for Kroft I guess means to ask questions the American people want to hear answered.  Never mind true journalism, ’60 Minutes’ is now part of a propaganda machine.

Oh my: Democrats launch plan to turn Texas blue

According to Politico, Battleground Texas is stacking the deck with Democratic power players, including Jeremy Bird, former national field director for President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign.

“With its diversity and size, Texas should always be a battleground state…” Bird says. “Over the next several years, Battleground Texas will focus on expanding the electorate by registering more voters — and as importantly, by mobilizing Texans who are already registered voters but who have not been engaged in the democratic process.”

All this talk of “…expanding the electorate by registering more voters…” is code for going from city to city and encouraging illegals to vote.  Bird also mistakenly associates diversity with liberalism.  Ultimately, Texas has the best economy in the Union because of its conservative state and local governments.
