Conservative TV Hosts Seen as Debate Moderators

"Republican insiders say the next presidential campaign season may see some star power from the hard-core conservative crowd, via debates moderated by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Sean Hannity," the Washington Times reports.

Said one GOP insider: "It makes a lot of sense. We'd get a huge viewership, they'd make a lot of news and maybe have some fun, too."

John Fund: "Just as the media landscape has offered more choices to consumers with the advent of new players, so too would presidential debates appeal to more viewers if they moved beyond the formats and cast that seem to have been ordained over a half century ago, during the Nixon-Kennedy confrontations. Everything else in the media is changing, so why not the fusty and frozen format of debates?"
