Look for CBS News to become more conservative in the months and years
Schieffer Brothers Prepare To Take Over High-Profile Jobs.
The New York Times (2/18, Steinberg , Sanger) reports on brothers Bob and Tom Schieffer. Bob will soon take over as interim anchor on CBS Evening News, while Tom was recently nominated by President Bush to be ambassador to Japan. The Times notes, “Asked how they planned to reinforce the journalistic and diplomatic firewalls between them - while still being able to talk freely about such uncontested matters as the doings of their sister, Sharon, a longtime educator - the two brothers said in separate interviews half a world away from each other that ‘common sense’ would rule.”
