TV Personality
    (1968- )
    Born in Washington, District of Columbia
    Birth name is John Frederick Dickerson
    Author of the biography, 'On Her Trail' (2006)
    Political Director for CBS News (2011- )
    Chief Political Correspondent for Slate Magazine
    Political commentator for CBS News (2009- )
    Political correspondent for Time Magazine (1993-2005)
    Served as Time Magazine's White House Correspondent (2001-2005)
    Frequent guest-host for 'Face the Nation'
    Announced as Bob Schieffer's successor as the host of 'Face the Nation' (Apr. 12, 2015)
    He is a Civil War buff.
    His passive aggressive style of interviewing has been nicknamed 'Dickersonian style.'
    He was a frequent guest on the Al Franken radio show.
    He was pampered in a 36-room Georgian-style D.C. mansion as a child.
    The widespread social media reaction to his selection was 'wait - who...?'
    He has the annoying habit of regularly posting Instagram photos of his food and coffee on Tumblr.
    He was at the center of Time Magazine's 2003 'War on Wilson' smear alleging that the Bush Administration leaked classified CIA information.
    He was criticized for penning a column shortly before the President's second Inauguration advising him to 'delegitimize' and 'pulverize' the GOP in his second term, crudely titled 'Go for the Throat!'
    Right Wing News outlets tried to make him into Darth Vader when his selection was made public, but he proved to be too dull, generic, and, for lack of a better term, boring, for anything to really stick or gain traction.
    He looks like Richard Widmark.
    He was characterized as one of George W. Bush's toughest WH Correspondent interviewers.
    His mother was an associate producer on the very first broadcast of 'Face the Nation.'
    His mother was also CBS News’ first female correspondent.
    He probably couldn't do any worse at filling his iconic predecessor's shoes than his Meet the Press counterparts have done with the late Tim Russert.
    He said of his mother in an interview, 'I owe her more gratitude than I ever expressed and more sympathy than I ever demonstrated.'
    He was portrayed as a far-left shill by the American Right, but has been critical of the Clintons, Barack Obama, and Congressional Democrats, on numerous occasions.
    He was on the receiving end of an awkward conference call with Hillary Clinton's top aides in which he asked 'what moment would you point to in Hillary's career in which she has been tested by crisis?' followed by an awkward, sustained silence (Feb. 2008).
    Mediaite's Joe Concha complained about his being selected, among other things trying to claim that the even more partisan Norah O'Donnell could be better trusted to be an objective, impartial host for the show.
