Middle East Crisis: Why Bob Stayed Home

CBS Evening News anchor Bob Schieffer wanted to travel to the Middle East, but he’s being strategic and letting a younger generation handle it. He tells Poynter’s Bob Steele:

“Yes, I wanted to go and really had hoped to go, but we’re in a rebuilding phase, obviously, here at CBS News, and this was really a chance to showcase some of our younger correspondents — in particular Lara Logan, who is a sort of a protege of mine, so I can’t really argue with that. And so Lara is co-anchoring the broadcast now for the next week or so from there, and I’ll be here.”
