    Not.

    It would be a stretch to claim that both Warren and Bernie are "establishment" candidates also. The questioners merely asked questions of those more capable of winning.
    Some might point out that Yang and Gabbard poll at just a few percentage points, while Warren and Biden top the polls. This is true, to some extent, but it clearly doesn’t explain the discrepancy. Amy Klobuchar polls below Yang and Gabbard but received substantially more speaking time, according to the New York Timesrunning tally. So, too, a similarly low-polling candidate, Cory Booker, received way more speaking time than Yang and Gabbard despite only polling marginally better.


    Additionally, it's ridiculous to suggest that only the higher-polling candidates should dominate the speaking time. The whole point of debates is to expose voters to all of the candidates and their contrasting ideas. Reinforcing the name recognition of the two most popular candidates does not further that goal but equal opportunity for all qualifying candidates would.


    Ultimately, it’s up to debate moderators to ensure that a debate is actually what happens — not just a town hall with their favorite two or three candidates. And in that, they failed. …..snip~



    LMAO now we know what category you are in. You should have read the article. Before validating it.

    The media can't be trusted to conduct debates. They will feed questions to their preferred candidates and they will actively attack candidates they oppose. I've actually seen a moderator of a media conducted debate engage in the debate against a Republican presidential candidate once. She joined in and defended the Democrat candidate when his policy ideas were criticized.

    The Leftness knew there was a debate last night. It was so bad. that the left now knows that none of their Clowns can beat Trump. So back to hoping on impeachment.


    Oh wait.....Schiff had a couple testify today. But notice the left doesn't want to talk about that either. Their witnesses today were just as bad as their Clowns last night.

    I don’t know that it’s corruption. It’s just acting on their bias.
