According to a new poll from CBS News and the New York Times, eight out of ten Democratic voters would like to see Hillary Clinton run for president in 2016, nearly double the enthusiasm shown for any other candidate from either of the United States’ two primary political parties. Several potential candidates found support among just over 40 percent of their party, including Vice President Joe Biden and former Florida governor Jeb Bush; however, none of the figures in the poll came close to matching the approval of the former Secretary of State.

The most important thing to every person is the truth and today the truth is we made a mistake. That’s very disappointing for any journalist.
CBS News reporter Lara Logan • Revealing that the news outlet believes it was misled by key source Morgan Jones in their reporting on the Benghazi story for “60 Minutes” a few weeks ago. Jones, who was interviewed under a pseudonym and whose real name is Dylan Davies, gave differing accounts to Logan and the FBI, and also wrote a book revealing differing information from what he told the FBI. “We take the vetting of sources and stories very seriously,” Logan added. “But we were misled and we were wrong and that’s the important thing.”

New polling data shows President Obama gaining ground in OH while slipping in FL and WV

  • Florida A new Quinnipiac University/NY Times/CBS News poll shows Mitt Romney has drastically cut into the the 53 - 44 lead enjoyed by President Obama in late September. Romney still trails among early voters though, sitting 6 points behind President Obama in a 50 - 44 race.
  • Ohio According to the same poll, President Obama leads Mitt Romney by 7 points, with current reports suggesting a 50 - 45 split, which he has maintained for more than a week now. Early voting in Ohio heavily leans towards the incumbent as well, with President Obama leading Mitt Romney 60 - 34. 
  • Virginia Mitt Romney has also managed to gain some ground in Virginia, where he trailed the President 51 - 46 as recently as October 11. The former governor of Massachusetts still trails President Obama 49 -47; however, the candidate is undoubtedly happy about shaving the five point spread. Early voters in Virginia also tend to back President Obama, where he currently holds a 57 - 38 lead. source

Callin’ it early: Phoenix’s CBS News affiliate KPHO accidentally called the 2012 Presidential Election in-favor of President Barack Obama for approximately seventeen seconds during a broadcast of ‘The People’s Court’ last Friday. Coincidentally, they gave the President the exact same lead that Mitt Romney is currently enjoying in the polls. What you may not have noticed, at first, is that they only alocated 83 percent of the vote between the two candidates. Does handing 17 percent of the electorate to third party candidates seem a bit ambitious to anybody else? source

I believed at the time that the documents were genuine, and I’ve never ceased believing that they are genuine.
Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather • Discussing the saga of George W. Bush’s questioned National Guard service, and the documents Rather found which ended an until-then illustrious career with CBS. Years after the fact, Texas Monthly looks back at a case which Poynter suggests was doomed because CBS jumped the gun with sketchy information, from a mysterious source at a cattle show. Rather, meanwhile, is still trying to defend his roughed-up name. Now’s a good time to look back at this story — with eight years of distance from the controversial CBS report that made proportional spacing a political issue, it’s good to reconsider exactly what happened.
