TVNewser caught up with CBS News’ Bob Schieffer at last night’s VP debate and asked him how he’s preparing to moderate the Oct. 15 debate between the presidential candidates. “I kind of do it the old-fashioned way,” he tells TVNewser. “I have some scissors at my desk. … I usually read about five newspapers a day. … I’ve got these big piles of research.” The debate, to be held at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., will be structured with nine 10-minute segments and will focus on domestic issues. “I’m really up for it because this campaign has just been so exciting,” Schieffer told the Web site.
