No Social Conservatives on CBS's List of 'Eye-Opening Women'
On Monday, CBS This Morning launched a week-long set of
interviews for Women's History Month, but the majority of the women they
picked for their list of "Eye Opening Women" are dedicated liberals,
particularly on social issues. The morning newscast first conducted a fawning interview
of former Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who was part of the Supreme
Court plurality that upheld the Roe v. Wade decision in 1992's Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
Five out of the eight remaining women featured for the series of interviews are all notables on the left side of the political spectrum. On Tuesday, anchors Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell will interview The Daily Beast's Tina Brown and Arianna Huffington, founder of far-left website The Huffington Post. Brown has a history of attacking conservatives. During a 2011 appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe program, she likened tax hike opponents to terrorists:
BUCHANAN: They [conservatives] say, 'This is the wrong way to go. We
don't believe in it. We've committed against it. We can't do it, Mr.
President, you're asking us to break our word and do something we think
is not going to work, and we're not going to do it, sir.'
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: So, I think the, what was the answer to my question that who the hostage taker is, Willie?
WILLIE GEIST: Sounds like Pat's boys. Pat's boys are holding the hostage.
TINA BROWN: I think they're the suicide bombers in all of this.
On two previous CBS morning show appearances in 2009, Brown ended up gushing over Mr. and Mrs. Obama.
