The show, airing on CBSNews.com and Politico.com, will include weekly roundtable interviews, Web original pieces and thoughtful, provocative, commentary.
"We'll focus on the news but will try to make it lively and entertaining," Schieffer explained. "And we will aim to get at some of the things that tell you how Washington really works -- some of the things that don't always make it into our broadcasts."
We hope "Washington Unplugged" will get out ahead on the week's news before the Sunday talk shows.
