Bob Schieffer and Brian Williams Lament SCOTUS Campaign Finance Decision (NewsBusters)

Both CBS's Bob Schieffer and NBC's Brian Williams cried foul on Wednesday evening at the Supreme Court striking down the cap on overall political donations, showing sympathy for supporters of the law.

Schieffer lamented that "More and more, the very rich are taking control of our politics" and that "this ruling is just one more sign that we no longer have any campaign laws that really matter."  Brian Williams actually quoted liberal Justice Stephen Breyer and asked what opponents of the decision could do.
