The Presidential debate commission announces the debate moderators.
PBS's Jim Lehrer will host the first presidential debate on Oct. 3 in Denver, Colo. CNN's Candy Crowley will host the second, town-hall debate on October 16 in Hempstead, N.Y. CBS's Bob Schieffer will host the third debate on Oct. 22 in Boca Raton, Fla.
ABC's Martha Raddatz will host the vice presidential debate on Oct. 11 in Danville, Ky.
I love the first comment at Politico:
Debate moderators were chosen for diversity - a network liberal, a cable liberal, a PBS liberal and a female liberal.
Yup. But as newsies go, these are about as centrist as could be expected, since both sides have to agree on each choice.
