Everyone loves a good debate -especially if there is a strong sense of an even-handed process facilitated by a skilled moderator, there are opportunities for the audience to get involved in the conversation, AND that they get to vote as to who wins!
I had high hopes for the second presidential debate for the 2016 election. The debate format was intended to be a “town hall” format:
It rankles me when something is advertised as one thing, and then it turns out to be something else. When a bank says, “free checking” only to find out it isn’t really “free.” Or when a product is touted as “new and improved” and it’s really the same formula in a new and improved package. Or
Moderating a nationally televised debate is never easy. Just ask Fox News anchors Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace, the moderators of Thursday’s first Republican Presidential Primary debate.
