Begs to differ

Naming TCU’s College of Communication for Bob Schieffer of CBS was an easy choice for whom? (See Thursday editorial “Naming college for Schieffer was an easy choice.”)

To suggest that Walter Cronkite and Bob Schieffer are/were liked and respected universally is a reach and inaccurate.

I venture that millions of Texans and Americans would disagree. I suggest that the Star-Telegram editorial writers and any readers with doubts about my statement Google the political views of both.
