This morning on Face The Nation, host Bob Schieffer used his commentary time at the end of the program to do a tongue in cheek interview with himself about the media's failures during the coverage of this primary season. Playing good cop/bad cop, Schieffer puts himself in the hot seat and asks tough questions of himself, and disappointingly, refuses to give himself straight answers. :)

Bad Schieffer: "Look, I think the more important question is, did we get it all wrong and the answer is no! Yes, we got it wrong on Senator Clinton, but we got it right on Senator McCain's victory and we clearly said that Dennis Kucinich was going nowhere, even though his wife got that new tongue ring. So, we're batting more than .500 here - in baseball, that's great."

Can you help us out?
