DEBATING THE DEBATES
The Commission on Presidential Debates has already introduced the official date and site of every normal election presidential debate in 2024. Next yr’s first presidential bout takes place on Sept. 16, with the others scheduled for Oct. 1 and Oct. 9.
Some observers are already questioning concerning the timing of those pivotal presidential dates.
“The debates will end earlier than they ever have. There will be 27 days between the last debate and Election Day on November 5. That’s compared to 12 days in 2020 and 20 days in 2016. However, it’s not certain the debates will actually happen,” CNN famous in an evaluation launched Monday.
“Last year, the Republican National Committee voted to withdraw from its participation in the commission, with chairwoman Ronna McDaniel saying at the time that the commission is biased and has refused to enact simple and common sense reforms,” the evaluation stated.
Nate Ashworth, founder and editor-in-chief of the political information website Election Central, added that “the so-called ‘non-partisan’ debate commission has been suspect for over a decade now.”
“Ever since moderator Candy Crowley inserted herself into the discussion between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, it was clear something had to change. Instead of acting as an impartial observer, Crowley fact-checked Romney on the fly but admitted she was wrong after the fact. Too late, the damage was done on live television,” he wrote.
“Republicans disdain the commission for those reasons and more. The simple fact that it’s hard to find moderators who don’t lean explicitly left in their politics means that the pool itself is tainted,” he stated.
“In short, the current system of presidential debates is broken — but the Commission on Presidential Debates is part of the swamp and not easily movable,” Mr. Ashworth concluded.
