FILE - In this Nov. 8, 2011, file photo, Bob Schieffer arrives at the 59th Annual BMI Country Awards in Nashville. Beneath Schieffer's Southern charm is the tough spine of someone used to dealing with politicians. The moderator of Monday's final presidential debate will need it, because it has been open season on the other journalists who have done that job this campaign. Thanks to a bitter campaign rivalry, thriving partisan media outlets and the growth of social media, debate moderator is approaching baseball umpire on the scale of thankless jobs.
