CNN and NBC Partisanship wrist slapped , C&PBS get passes
We did a lot Debate coverage here . Primaries too , covering all of them I think . Every one of them was ' Moderated ' by surprise , a moderate . We should expect as much by now . Newt was the PDUS Candidate from early on , ( not affiliated w CBS or PBS ) . He woulda won BTW , easily , because he was not prone to Moderation , and he had some Balls when dealing w liberal antagonists including their ' Moderate Referees ' . Mittens OTOH displayed his Gentleman's noblese oblige , deferring to weaker argument and manufactured premise instead of attacking like a Newtrino . He was a true ' Country Club ' , ' Rockefeller ' republican , typically ashamed of the base .
Reince Priebus of the RNC yesterday threatened to freeze CNN and NBC out of the 2016 Debates . He is offended by their Puff Pieces planned for pending President Pantsuit , comparing those productions to ' in kind ' donations to The Party . He has a point , but stops two miles short .
Had Newt become the Candidate he wanted a Lincoln / Douglas style 2 hour debate w NO moderators at all . They really have no business in our debates , and have proven MANY TIMES to be unfair stewards , preferring advocacy . The most egregious was the SHAMEFUL CNN debacle in Debate #3 . Candy Crowley incorrectly awarded a debate Point to the left at the Bell , moderating the results ( and claimed she would proudly do so again ) .
As we understand it , that is the job for their Chorus , their flappers and middlemen . Moving the Debate towards the Moderate side . RNC Chair Reince Priebus... " I think it’s just about time our party stands up and protects the party and our candidates from networks that are not in the business of promoting our party – they’re not in the business of promoting our candidates, they’re not in the business of doing anything but promoting the Democratic party."
I would change Debate Rules . No moderation at all . Or if you get a David Gregory or George Stephanopoulos we get a Rush Limbaugh or Michelle Malkin . No more ' Moderating ' the results . We have elected too many moderates already while failing to nominate true conservatives .
We have babied our irrelevants far too long .
It won't do that by ' moderating '.
