Bob Schieffer kicked off his final show as host of CBS‘s Face the Nation (5/31/15) with a clip of what he said on his first show 24 years ago:

“Our aim is going to be very simple here, to find interesting people from all segments of American life who have something to say and give them a chance to say it.”

The Washington Post‘s Michelle Ye Hee Lee (5/31/15), reviewing Schieffer’s last broadcast, wrote:

“And Schieffer remained true to the tradition on his final broadcast, giving guests who had something to say — former Florida governor Jeb Bush, CIA Director John Brennan and a panel of journalists — a chance to say it.”

The idea that the establishment’s favorite right-wing presidential candidate and the head of the CIA qualify as “interesting people from all segments of American life” can only make sense in the insular world of Beltway journalism.
