Rare burst of honesty from mainstream media

There are very few members of the media who have had the guts to call Trump's nonsense for what it is: racism. One who has was Bob Schieffer on the CBS Evening News last night. Commenting on Trump's latest smear, that Obama couldn't have gotten into Columbia and Harvard without help,

Schieffer told Katie Couric, "that's just code for saying he got into law school because he's black. This is an ugly strain of racism that's running through this whole thing. We can hope that kind of comes to an end too, but we'll have to see."
Good for you, Schieffer. We've all known that, but it's nice to hear someone on the nightly news state it unequivocally.
