MAYBE NOW THAT DICKERSON HAS TAKEN OVER, FACE THE NATION CAN BE RENAMED FACE LEFT:

Dickerson is an extreme case. His appointment raises once again the question, why should Republicans go on television programs that are nothing but partisan left-wing operations? Why grant them that apparent legitimacy? Dickerson is on record as wanting to destroy the Republican Party, so why play his game? In my view, any Republican who goes on Face the Nation at this point is foolish.

Bear in mind, too, that in all election cycles prior to this one, hostile “journalists” like John Dickerson presided over GOP presidential primary debates. Their objective was to make all the Republican candidates, and the party as a whole, look bad. Reince Priebus has, I hope, finally put that practice to rest (although leftists will still preside over the general election debates). But incalculable damage has been done, over the years, by Democratic Party activists masquerading as objective journalists. Once they have been unmasked, there is no reason to cooperate in their efforts to, as Dickerson put it, “destroy the GOP.”

Nope. And here’s some related advice from Margaret Thatcher.
