Ummm, conservatives don't need 60 Minutes to tell us the guy isn't a racist.
We can figure that out all by ourselves. OTOH, the Dems may need the official pronouncement.
pretty insulting, KP ! :( nt
No problem, Richard
I expected nothing more and nothing less from KP.
So, why tout 60 Minutes as the source of this valuable information, and
add the aside about those who don't think too highly of its propaganda?

Because I knew that would put you in the position of having to either withdraw your comment that 60 Minutes can't be trusted, or dispute a story that was favorable to one of your own.
In other words you got the response you asked for...
60 Minutes still can't be trusted but the people ON 60 Minutes can be checked up on and credibility verified.

Huh! Is that clever or what? How would your post produce either outcome?
Your cleverness has exceeded my ability to grasp it. I know I'm getting old, but I didn't think I was that old.
Glad to see you..
looking at both sides again, Josh.
BTW, do you know the details of the case where he reduced the sentence of the "cross burner"? There was nothing race related in the action.
Seems there were 3 of them. 2 of them did the actual burning and the third stayed in the truck and pled that he did not know what the other 2 were planning.
The other 2 got very light sentences through a quirk of the law and their trial circumstances and the 3rd boy got a big sentence. Pickering reduced that sentence to something more like what the actual perpretrators got.
Pickering was also endorsed by the Mississippi NAACP. That alone should have quashed the racist label, but was not good enough for those who are intent on blocking any judicial appointment higher than bottom level appointments.
Re:Glad to see you..
I don't really know anything about the case other than what I heard during the interview last night. I'd heard about the controversy over Pickering, mainly from discussions in this forum. My wife and I both found him credible and felt the one decision was not being looked at in proper proportion to the rest of his life's work.
