Bernie Goldberg on John Lewis: ‘Even Heroes Need To Be Held Accountable’

‘I met John Lewis in Atlanta, he was gracious, he was dignified, and I liked him’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
GOLDBERG: "I was doing a story for the “CBS evening news” on one of the anniversaries, I don’t remember which one, of the March in Selma Alabama. And I met John Lewis in Atlanta, he was gracious, he was dignified, and I liked him. He is a genuine American hero who made America a better place, not just for black people, but for all of us. But as I said and as you alluded to in the lead-in, even heroes need to be held accountable."
