    DeVos gets cold shoulder from White House after interviews

    Education Secretary Nancy DeVos is apparently getting the cold shoulder from the White House after her embarrassing interview on CBS's Face The Nation this past Sunday.

    CBS Correspondent Lesley Stahl literally opened DeVos up like a can of peas in the disastrous interview.

    "WASHINGTON (AP) Education Secretary Betsy DeVos got a less than ringing endorsement from the White House on Monday after a pair of uncomfortable television interviews raised questions about her commitment to help underperforming schools and support for President Donald Trump's proposal to curb school violence.
    Less than a day after DeVos was appointed to chair a federal commission on school safety, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders downplayed DeVos' role in the process. Asked whether DeVos would be the face of the commission, Sanders said, "I think that the president is going to be the lead on school safety when it comes to this administration."
    Sanders also said that the focus is "not one or two interviews, but on actual policy."
    In an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes" that aired Sunday night, DeVos said years of federal investment in public education had produced "zero results" and that American schools were stagnating and failing many students. But asked by CBS' Lesley Stahl whether she had visited low-performing schools to understand their needs, DeVos, an ardent proponent of school choice, admitted to having visited none."

    Trump needs to unload her as soon as possible since it's perfectly clear that she is not up for the job she was picked to do. Just another embarrassment for the Trump administration.

    Obviously she failed in the interview. She didn't tell the media exactly what they wanted to hear did she?
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    I would not trust the news media if it told me the sun rose in the East.

    I have seen several instances when I absolutely knew the story but by the time it hit television or print it had no resemblance to what I knew for a fact occurred. On programs like 60 Minutes the interviews are so edited to the point they have nothing to do with the actual unedited interviews. I have seen it happen

    The news media has an agenda and something like the truth or facts should never be allowed to interfere with that agenda.
