[See NewsBusters for more.] Presidential historian Douglas Brinkley joined Thursday’s installment of CBS Mornings to discuss the death of former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and his “duality.” On one hand, Brinkley panned Kissinger as someone who “had a bad, anti-democratic record,” but on the other, he praised Kissinger for being the guy who set in motion Israeli-Egyptian peace and tried to argue that is what is needed today with Israel and Gaza, ignoring key differences between the two.
