Norah O'Donnell, Sarah Palin Hater;

Norah O'Donnell, Typical Liberal, Lies:

Norah O'Donnell, Typical Liberal, Slanders:
In April 2010, O'Donnell implied that Newt Gingrich had made racist comments at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference for a basketball reference he made when criticizing Barack Obama. Gingrich had said "What we need is a president, not an athlete. Shooting three point shots may be clever, but it doesn't put anybody to work."
In response to the criticism, Gingrich said, "The left is becoming a parody of itself ... she immediately said that must be a racist comment. It's relatively hard to go from, 'we need somebody who is a good president more than somebody who shoots three points shots,' to, 'that must have been racist.'"
Norah O'Donnell, Attacks Christians!
On Tuesday's CBS This Morning, Norah O'Donnell hounded popular Christian pastor Rick Warren over his support of defining marriage as being between one man and one woman.

When the Saddleback Church senior pastor affirmed that he was "in favor of not redefining marriage," the anchor used the current trend in polls towards approval of such unions to lobby her guest to change his views:
