Last survivor from 1960 debates has four-yearly two cents

Bill Schadel, then of ABC News, moderated the third in the series of Nixon-Kennedy debates [1].

And the Seattle Times today asks him what he thinks of the Bush-Kerry tourney. (Not much it boils down to.)

Schadel, now 96 and bedridden, was apparently with Edward R Murrow during the London Blitz and when he entered Buchenwald.

  1. Very odd MO:
    Shadel moderated the [debate] from a studio in Los Angeles. Nixon was in a separate studio there; Kennedy was on a set built on a New York soundstage. The journalists on the panel and Shadel were also in separate studios.
