CNN’s Dana Bash: Major Garrett Crossed Line with ‘Disrespectful’ Obama Question

dana bashA lot happened during President Obama‘s Iran presser today, but the moment getting the most attention is when CBS’ Major Garrett confronted the president by asking, “Why you are content with all the fanfare around this deal to leave the conscience of this nation, the strength of this nation unaccounted for in relation to these four Americans?”

Obama took some offense at the question, saying, “That’s nonsense, and you should know better.”

Garrett defended himself a little later, insisting he intended to pose a provocative question. But a fellow reporter thought he went a little too far.

CNN’s Dana Bash said after the presser, “There’s a fine line between asking a tough question and maybe crossing that line a little bit and being disrespectful, and I think that happened here.”
