‘We Don’t Spend A Lot of Time Bragging About our Work and our Reporters’

“Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer did something on his show today that he admits he doesn’t do often: trumpet the work of one of his CBS News colleagues. “We don’t spend a lot of time here bragging about our work and our reporters,” said Schieffer, adding, “We don’t even use the word exclusive very much.” Schieffer then closed his show talking with foreign correspondent Clarissa Ward who, along with her producer Ben Plesser, snuck into and back out of Syria last week, reporting on the deteriorating situation there.

A year ago this month, Plesser was the first Western journalist to report out of Libya at the start of the civil war there.
