Just hours after CBSNEWS admitted it cannot prove the authenticity of documents used in a 60 MINUTES story about President Bush's National Guard service, top Bush advisers are recommending a CBS reporter be removed as moderator of a planned presidential debate, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

CBS should be completly flushed down the toilet. Give it to FOX.
Who would that have been? Anyone with CBS is suspect.
Ha, here comes the charges of White House "intimidation" of the Media!
Brit Hume from FNC would be perfect!
I may be the lone dissenter, but I think that Bush should go and face them head on. I think that Kerry looked like such a whiner in the face of the swiftvet adds! Bush has had to deal with Michael Moore, Farenheit 9/11, pop culture icons, mainstream press coverage, and the original CBS document mess. I think he should just go in there, stand strong, and take down both Kerry and CBS.
Bush is well justified in not allowing these biased conivers and liars from moderating. Insist on Brit Hume.
I feel very guilty that I am ROTFLMAO.
Great way to keep Rathergate in the media until Blather retires.
I'm glad his faux-pology is being taken with a grain of salt.
Keep hammering the MSM Bush. Give'em hell.
I know this was reported on here last night.
I think the FCC should suspend the SEE-B.S. broadcasting license until such time as See-B.S. names all the names.
Brit Hume is a logical choice.
It's about time that someone from Fox News got an opportunity to moderate the debate.
However, if we don't get Hume, then who else should be the moderator?
Bush should leave the cBS moderator on. When he gets a goofball question, he can ask, "Did Dan give you that question?"
A classy, statesman-like slap at CBS.
Unless Sheiffer could be prevailed upon to ask Kerry some hardballs--think he feels enough pressure to atone for CBS's failure to commit journalism?
Yep, they should demand it, or that debate is cancelled.
I agree to some extent, but...this may be the WH's way of keeping the story up front. The media would love nothing more than to bury this story, and even if it dies down, this snub almost guarantees a rehash of the CBS events during the debates...when many more people will be paying attention.
