CBS Strikes Obama From the Left on Gun Control; Fails to Mention Chicago's High Crime Rate to Emanuel
Norah O'Donnell and Charlie Rose ganged up on former Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel on the 18 December 2012 edition of CBS This Morning over the President's apparent failure to push for stricter gun control during his first term. O'Donnell hounded the Chicago mayor and wondered if he and his former bass had been "worried about the political backlash of taking on and pushing for the assault weapons ban." Rose also insisted that the President needed to admit fault for not doing enough to pass regulations on firearms.
Neither anchor brought up the Illinois's city's high crime rate and how it might be related to its strict gun control measures.
