John Dickerson Reporter’s Notebook

John Dickerson, co-host of “CBS This Morning” and resident dad, shared an article he wrote about what fatherhood means to him ahead of Father’s Day.
On Father’s Day, the typical American will spend $133, and you only have 48 hours to buy a gift.

It’s the second year in a row that I don’t have a father to shop for. I still pick up the phone to dial his number. When I make a terrible pun, I hear his echo. He was a smart character, which explains why his favorite photograph is of him with comedian Jack Benny. The mirror now tells me that I’ve reached the age when I resemble him on occasion.

He was 92 years old, and we had completed the circle of being fathers to our fathers. One day, the man I hoisted to his hospital bed was the same man who carried me on his shoulder with tenacity and grace.

We accumulate fathers as we grow older. And the lessons they taught. My stepfather did arrive in Normandy, but he never brags about it. He could talk about something he understood a lot about with someone who was certain, loud, and completely wrong, and he’d never make them feel small for their stupidity. That was me a lot of the time.

This year, my father-in-law turned 80. He measures twice and cuts once, just like the other two — an Eagle Scout who is self-made, has no pride, but is quick to be proud of others. A father is deserving of his daughter’s affection.

This discussion of gifts is not intended to serve as a reminder to my children. This year, I don’t deserve a present. It isn’t that I am a bad father. Just ask me, and I’ll tell you everything you need to know. I don’t need a present because parenting is the present: you can never truly understand something until you can see it through the eyes of your children.

You’ve never believed in God more than when you have to explain why you believe in him to your daughter — without taking the easy way out and saying that your love for her is proof that he exists. You’ve never heard John Prine sing as beautifully as when he’s singing the songs you used to sing as lullabies to the boy sitting next to you at a performance.

So, this is a note of gratitude. I am already glad for the privilege of being your son, stepson, son-in-law, and, most importantly, your father. I don’t require a present. I’m ok. Every day, I receive mine.

John Dickerson Author

On August 2, 2016, he published Whistlestop: My Favorite Stories from Presidential Campaign History, which was published by Twelve, a Hachette Book Group imprint.

John Dickerson Book

WHISTLESTOP is a film about nervous gambits concocted in first-floor hotel rooms, willful failures in front of the microphone, and the cross-country crack-ups of long-planned stratagems. These are the stories media rehearse for themselves and embellish for newbies at the end of a campaign day in the bar.

WHISTLESTOP also recounts the lost stories about the bloody and reckless campaigns of the nineteenth century, when the warriors feared the consequences would involve the destiny of the republic itself. Before the roads were built and electric lights lighted the convention halls-or there-some of the most modern-feeling components of the American presidential campaign were born.
