CBS Runs Segment: ‘Let’s Give Up on the Constitution’
Charles Osgood, the host of CBS Sunday Morning, shocked many viewers when he introduced a segment that called for the abolishment of the U.S. Constitution.
“Is the U.S. Constitution truly worthy of the reverence in which most Americans hold it,” Osgood asked his viewers.
He then introduced Georgetown University Professor Louis Michael Seidman — who launched into a lengthy essay bashing the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.
“I’ve got a simple idea: Let’s give up on the Constitution,” he said.
Seidman is a professor of Constitutional Law at Georgetown. He said Constitutional disobedience is “as American as apple pie.”
“If we are to take back our own country, we have to start making decisions for ourselves, and stop deferring to an ancient and outdated document,” he said.
The segment ended without any objections from Osgood.
