On Using the Press Corps as Moderators
The Debate between Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence:
Moderated by USA Today’s Susan Page
I hope everyone noticed that the C-SPAN moderator Susan Page spent more time interrupting Pence than she did asking the predetermined questions. I notice within 10 minutes and started tracking HER.
It was immediately clear that the fifteen seconds for reply rule was created to actually prevent adequate replies — unless one was prepared ahead of time and told to use sound bites. (15 seconds of reading simple text allows only enough time to speak 35–40 words). And that’s where “moderator” Susan Page’s role became telling in this debate.
What do you make of this? I think its easier to understand when you take into account the on-going war against the Trump Administration by the news broadcasters themselves. They’ve even sided with this weakest pair of candidates in American history. So the moderator just provided more cross talk than was created by the two people debating each other.
By injecting herself again and again, Page’s mission succeeded in obscuring everything Mike Pence said in response to the Vice President of Denial, Kamala Harris.
And here’s Huffpost immediately following the debate: “Mr. Vice President, I’m Speaking’: Kamala Harris Shuts Down Mike Pence’s Interruptions” Hah! No, Susan Page of USA Today shutdown every repsonse made by Vice President Mike Pence.
Has your respect for the newscasters and their “publishers” risen because of this? I don’t think so. They are not just “fake news” they are Democrat-supporting agents of the American Pravda Press.
The fools in the 1980’s who brought about the end of the Fair Standards and Practices Doctrine struck a deadly blow against not the freedom of the press, they destroyed the trust of the American People. Our trust. Eliminating fair standards isn’t even rational.
So the last question posed by CSPAN’s so-called “moderator” was about the “hate” on the part of politicians and parties. Of course it was because making more false accusations against President Trump is always the point of Democrats and the Dishonest Pravda Press. [The real cause is the end of the Fair Standard and Practices Doctrine back in the 1980s. A colossal blunder.]
Honesty is the product of completeness and accuracy.
Trust is the product of honesty.
But there is no honesty left in the so-called “Progressive” news media and politicians of the Democratic Party.
We are in a crisis and it’s going to cost every one of us if we fail to put an end to the real socialist aliens among us. Stop being victims of an evil which only needs to be destroyed.
