<p>As <em>CBS This Morning</em> gave retiring Bob Schieffer a glowing send-off on Friday, the longtime <em>Face the Nation</em> moderator ripped the current media landscape: &ldquo;Well, it&#39;s been turned upside down....<strong>we now don&#39;t know where people get their news, but what we do know is they&#39;re bombarded with information 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Most of the information is wrong and some of it wrong on purpose.&rdquo;</strong></p>
