A member of the Rat Pack of broadcast journalism’s halcyon years (along with Walter Cronkite, Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings and Dan Rather), Schieffer has held every major job at CBS News. He’s moderated presidential debates, anchored the network news, written bestselling books and survived cancer. His show, “Face the Nation,” which this year celebrated its 60th anniversary, still sits atop the ratings. “CBS This Morning” co-anchor Norah O’Donnell sits down with him In the run-up to the Iowa caucuses, as he begins a Harvard fellowship focused on the 2016 election, for his expert take on today’s news, and what’s going on behind the headlines.
