Evening Newscasts Wrap - 10/1/04

CBS' Byron Pitts fact checks several of the statements that Bush and Kerry made during last night's debate. He cites Kerry's statement on the "200 billion dollars spent in Iraq" as well as his statement about Osama bin Laden. He also cites Bush's remark about training Iraqi security forces.


ABC's Kate Snow looks at how voters in Ohio responded to the debate last night. Several viewers said they got tired of hearing Bush call Kerry a flip-flopper. The group was happy hearing so much substance last night, but says they still need to know more to make an informed decision.


Brokaw says today, Secretary of State Colin Powell criticized John Kerry for some of his debate statements on the war. But he also said he regrets saying Saddam Hussein had stockpiles of chemical weapons. Powell says he stands by the bulk of his speech to the United Nation, but regrets some of the report was based on faulty intelligence.

Brokaw says Delay was admonished on Capitol Hill for his behavior after telling a congressman he would support the political career of his relative if the congressman changed his vote.
