Last night in Southfield, Michigan, CBS News reporter Bo Erickson asked Joe Biden about the reports in the New York Post. Biden said he wouldn’t respond except to call it a “smear campaign” followed by an attack on the reporter.

Erickson’s colleague at CBS News, Paula Reid, found Biden’s criticism of the reporter to be unnecessary:

Basically Tanden’s complaints boil down to this:
