Co-Moderator Of First Dem Primary Debate On NBC: Partisan Conspiracy Theorist Rachel Maddow

st what we needed. Ninety minutes of questions about Trump, Russia, and smelters.

Has Fox News ever let Hannity co-moderate a debate, even a primary debate? He’s a hardcore partisan and occasional conspiracy theorist too, just like Maddow, but he’s been there for almost 25 years and I don’t recall him ever being given a seat at the table on debate night. Maybe that’s an internal thing at Fox, with the network insisting on a firm separation between its “news” team and its “opinion” team to help shield itself from criticism from the left that it’s in the tank for Republicans. That may be true with respect to the opinion side like Hannity, Fox seems to say, but for a major news event like a presidential debate we send only the fair-and-balanced news people.

It may also be, though, that Fox expects it wouldn’t be allowed to get away with adding Hannity as a moderator the way NBC will get away with this. Maddow, after all, is a Serious Person. A Rhodes Scholar! She doesn’t give you low-rent crankery like the Seth Rich stuff Hannity once pushed. She gives you only the choicest high-end Russiagate crankery. She’s the thinking man’s crackpot. And of course, unlike Fox, NBC’s news team is impartial. And so:

The first debate of the Democratic presidential primary will be moderated by Savannah Guthrie, Lester Holt, Chuck Todd, José Díaz-Balart of Telemundo, and the MSNBC commentator Rachel Maddow, NBC News announced on Tuesday…

For many Democratic voters, the debate will be the first opportunity to compare presidential contenders on the same stage, albeit across two consecutive nights. Ten candidates will appear each night, but the party has not yet announced which 20 contenders have met the party-mandated criteria for the debate, which is determined by the Democratic National Committee based on a mix of national polls and quantity of campaign donors.

>Must be for full prosecution of all whistleblowers
>on and on...

2. Why would you bring a cow to a dog and pony show?

I guess this a barnyard affair. Watch where you step.
