[See NewsBusters for more.] 60 Minutes journalist Lesley Stahl on Sunday spent 13 minutes fawning over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a “powerful” “giant slayer” and the “patron saint of shade” when it comes to Donald Trump. The segment featured little in the way of criticism or push back, other than to wonder why the Democratic politician hasn’t accomplished more of her liberal goals. When Pelosi compared herself to the Founding Fathers and Abraham Lincoln, Stahl didn’t offer skepticism. The Speaker bragged, “As our Founders said, when they declared independence and established a new nation, 'The times have found us.' The times found Lincoln. Not to be presumptuous to put ourselves in those categories, but the times have found us.”
