WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — The legendary Bob Schieffer is calling it a career Sunday as he hosts his last “Face the Nation.”
Schieffer joined CBS News in 1969 and in that span he covered the White House, State Department, Pentagon, Capitol Hill, anchored the “CBS Evening News,” and hosted “Face the Nation” the past 24 years.
Washington has changed dramatically when he began covering the nation’s capital. Schieffer told “CBS This Morning” on Friday that the “revolution in communications” has turned D.C. “upside-down.”
ONTARIO (CBSLA.com) — Ontario residents are divided after a video of National Guard troops marching through a neighborhood in the city went viral.
Conspiracy theories about martial law are swirling online since the video of the march, which took place last Saturday, hit the web.
“I believe that they’re slowly but surely making their way into martial law,” Ontario resident Vicente Martinez said. “They’re trying to fool us by telling us it’s a training and then when it actually does take place and actually does happen, there’s nothing you’re going to be able to do about it.”

“There was more people that knew it was going on,” the former worker told CBS4.
SAN JOSE (KCBS) — After several community meetings, a San Jose city commission has decided to endorse use of a police drone. The pilot project still needs approval from the city council, but this marks an important step for police in getting the public to buy in.
San Jose’s Neighborhoods Commission is endorsing the device but only for a 12-month test. The commission agreed with the police department that the unmanned aerial system could be an important tool for police. For some, the recent death of San Jose Police Officer Michael Johnson in March highlights the need to look for new ways to keep cops out of unnecessary danger.
