Schieffer set to fill Rather's CBS seat

USATODAY reports:

Washington correspondent Bob Schieffer is all but certain to be named interim anchor on The CBS Evening News when Dan Rather steps down next month, sources within CBS News say.
Amazingly the whole multi-anchor format wasn't just idle speculation from Les Moonves; apparently they're really going through with a Headline News clone.

Of course adding Lara Logan as one of the anchors might help restore some of the Evening News' anemic ratings.

At work I am forced to watch CBS as it is the only channel that will work. Logan is definitely a cute one,but they also have Trish Regan,Serena Atchul(from MTV if you guys evers saw her),and Kelly Cabbiella(or Cabbierra or something like that). Sometimes I don't even hear them,just stare at them.

Lora Logan? That looks like Julie from "The Mod Squad" to me.

...which isn't a bad thing; if she looked like Peggy Lipton does today -- that might not be but so nice.

Bob "I was snookered" Schieffer.

Oh well, at least the day after he reported a completely false, unverified story fed him by the Dems during Clinton's Lewinski scandal testimony, he admitted he was had. However, I thought (and still think) he should have reported the entire story..i.e. WHO fed him the false story.

Unfortunately, Schieffer's entire report on the subject was, "I was snookered."

Rather light?

Well now, if Lara's gonna do the evening news, I'll just watch it with the sound turned off....hehehehe.
