CBS Bashes Bannon for Risking His ‘Good Catholic’ Status on DACA

25 views

[See NewsBusters for more.] Suddenly, CBS is interested in the Catholic Church’s stances on moral issues. This Morning co-host Charlie Rose on Thursday badgered Steve Bannon on whether his support for ending the immigration policy known as DACA might endanger his “good Catholic” status. Rose previewed his upcoming 60 Minutes interview, highlighting this exchange on religious opposition to ending the program: “Can I remind you, a good Catholic, that Cardinal Dolan is opposed to what's  happening with DACA? Cardinal Dolan!” Bannon shot back that the “Catholic Church has been terrible about this" issue. Rose later marveled, “Boy, that's a tough thing to say about your church!” This is a bit much coming from a CBS journalist. The network isn’t generally a fan of citing the Church’s stances on moral issues, including abortion and others.
