Meet the unbiased moderator of this Thursday’s final Presidential debate.
She’s an NBC reporter with long ties to the Democratic Party, who once asked President Trump if he had ever worked for Russia, who quickly deleted her Twitter tweets after being chosen, and who is known for being caught on camera tipping off Hillary Clinton’s spokeswoman about a question she was going to ask. The New York Post quoted a senior White House official as saying that they consider her an activist, not a reporter, and that the press corps views her the same way they would if Nancy Pelosi or AOC walked into the room.
So, pretty much your stand Presidential Debate Commission choice for moderator. The Wall Street Journal has a good diagnosis of what went wrong with the Commission: like so many things, it started out with good intentions, then became a “creature of Washington’s political class,” and now, it’s hopelessly partisan. Their suggestion:
“This year should be its last as the arbiter of debates. If it won’t go away on its own, the next GOP nominee should refuse to cooperate and negotiate the rules and timing of the debates in 2024 with the Democratic nominee.”
I second that. To let them continue picking the moderators would be like a football team letting all the referees for the big game be chosen from the other team’s cheerleading squad.
