Bachmann campaign manager: CBS director is ‘a piece of s–t’
CBS political director John Dickerson won’t have to ever worry about how Michele Bachmman and her campaign really feel about him.
The Bachmann campaign was incensed after an email chain circulated Saturday evening featuring Dickerson telling a CBS employee that Bachmann would get fewer questions in a post debate interview than other candidates.
“Okay, let’s keep it loose though since she’s not going to get many questions and she’s nearly off the charts in the hopes that we can get someone else,” he wrote.
The problem for Dickerson however was the fact that he didn’t know the Bachmann campaign was apart of the email chain. Seeing what he wrote, the Minnesota congresswoman’s campaign director Keith Nahigian reportedly stormed into the spin room in a rage, according to CNN.
“John Dickerson should be fired,” Nahigan said. “He is a piece of shit. He is a fraud and he should be fired.”
In defense of their actions, a CBS spokesperson said, “It was a candid exchange about the reality of the circumstances – Bachmann remains at 4% in the polls.”
