It’s exceptionally obvious that Chris Wallace and Susan Page have been co-debaters masquerading as debate moderators. It wasn’t until the final 15 minutes of the debate that Page interrupted Sen. Harris. By that time, she’d interrupted Vice President Pence at least 20 times for going long on his answer. Despite Page’s interruptions, Sen. Harris still wound up with more speaking time than Vice President Pence. Sen. Harris wound up speaking 3 more minutes than Vice President Pence.

That’s the bad news for the Trump-Pence ticket. The good news for the Trump-Pence ticket is that Vice President Pence defeated the Harris-Page ticket last night. It wasn’t that close of a match, TBH. One thing positive that I’ll say about Susan Page is that she didn’t interrupt Sen. Harris when Sen. Harris admitted that Vice President Biden would raise everyone’s taxes if elected:

“On the other hand, you have Donald Trump, who measures the strength of the economy based on how rich people are doing. Which is why he passed a tax bill benefiting the top 1% and the biggest corporations of America, leading to a two trillion dollar deficit that the American people are going to have to pay for. On day one, Joe Biden will repeal that tax bill. He’ll get rid of it.

The it that Biden would get rid of is the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. It includes child tax credits, lower marginal tax rates and Tim Scott’s Opportunity Zones provisions that are intended to attract investment in minority neighborhoods and communities. Why would Biden get rid of things that help minority communities?

Further, Joe Biden was in DC for almost half a century. Was he too blind to notice these problems? Or did he just take the problems for granted? Blighted neighborhoods aren’t a new phenomenon. Detroit was destroyed 30 years ago, partially by terrible trade deals, partially by counterproductive urban policies. Baltimore has been blighted for 20+ years. But I digress.

Susan Page wasn’t as obnoxious as Chris Wallace but she still interfered too often. What needs to change is having co-moderators, where mainstream conservatives like Katie Pavlich, Ed Morrissey, Guy Benson and Charlie Kirk pitch questions to the Democrats and sensible Democrats, if they still exist, ask questions of the GOP nominee.

The truth is that the MSM has swerved so far left in supporting Democrats that the MSM is considered the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party. The Joe Biden ‘town hall’ with undecided voters had 2 people on who identified themselves a couple months ago as likely Biden voters. George Stephanopoulos’s Trump town hall was so hostile that I thought the Secret Service might be required to protect our president. The notion of objectivity or, at minimum, neutrality disappeared in 2016. (Think Adam Schiff, impeachment and the Russia Hoax.)
