Breaking news forces Face the Nation to not air Kasich interview

Jack Torry in the Washington Bureau is reporting that CBS’ Face The Nation, which taped an interview Friday with Gov. John Kasich, was forced to drop the interview on its show today to make for breaking news about the earthquake in Nepal and the protests in Baltimore over the death this month of Freddie Gray while in police custody.

Instead, CBS posted the interview on its web site. Referring to Kasich’s comments last week on NBC’s Meet The Press that before he decided whether to run for president, “the most important thing is, what does the Lord want me to do with my life,” Face the Nation anchor Bob Schieffer asked if the Lord has told him what to do?

Kasich smiled and replied, “All I was saying, Bob, back then was, I think we all have a purpose for our life and you just figure out what’s the right thing to do in life. And if I think I can win, I’m likely to do it,” saying there “has got to be a path to victory.”

In addition, Kasich said while he believes marriage is between a man and a woman, he has attended a same-sex wedding involving a friend.

Kasich, who is considering a run for the presidency in 2016, had been in Washington Thursday, Friday and Saturday for a series of public speeches. He also attended Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
