Presidential Debate Moderator Bob Schieffer has a slip of tongue calling Osama bin Laden, “Obama bin Laden.”
He said: “We know that Pakistan has arrested the doctor who helped us catch Obama-uh-bin Laden,” Schieffer said, seeming to realize his mistake immediately.
This is a common gaffe committed by many other news anchors including Keith Olberman, and several Fox News analysts.
Prior to the debate, there was some talk that Schieffer, 75, the host of CBS’s Face The Nation, might be better served by giving way to a younger moderator.
How do you think Schieffer did moderating the final debate?
