To Whom It May Concern,
I have been a faithful viewer of your program for a number of years and have always commended host and moderator Bob Schieffer for his performance. I also realize that news stories and current events will dictate the show’s guests in any given week. So while I was disappointed to see no coverage or analysis of the President’s State of the Union address, I did understand the need to cover the crazy and wild rollercoaster that the GOP primary season has become.
That being said, I find it inexcusable that your guest, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, was allowed to call President Obama ‘Captain Schettino’ on multiple occasions without a single rebuke from Mr. Schieffer. Worse, Mr. Priebus seemed to enjoy the moment as he laughed at the notion of the comparison. I do not need to explain to you the overt allegation made by Mr. Priebus, but what I expect from you is condemnation and apology for allowing a political operative to accuse our President of cowardice and dereliction of duty.
On the week you debuted the 60 minute broadcast, you may have gained 30 minutes, but you lost this viewer. I venture I am not the only one.
