If you’re reading this Editorial, I am quite confident that you saw the NBC sort of Debate last night between Crooked Hillary and Trump.
And if you did . . . I have to assume that you came away with similar opinions as I did. And here they are:
I expected that the Moderator, Matt Lauer would be less than FAIR & BALANCED . . . even though he would try to “couch” his questions to seem to be OBJECTIVELY EQUAL, but would not be.
Well . . . SURPRISE – SURPRISE, Matt Lauer of NBC News, which is 100% not pro Conservative, surprised the Hell out of me by playing it right down the middle.
I think there are two reasons, and maybe three . . . why Lauer didn’t try to smack around Donald Trump.
1 – He and NBC might be seeing that Trump will become the President of the United States, and figured that it would not be in their best interests to have him as an Enemy.
2 – I truly believe that Lauer understood . . . that if he would START unfairly with Trump, Trump would START with him, since The Donald has already proven that he is no one’s BUM-BOY.
3 – As the CREDIBILITY of the News Media is falling through the floor, NBC did not want to lose even more than they’ve already lost, especially knowing that there would be a huge NEW AUDIENCE watching . . . including Conservatives and Independents, who might be interested in tuning in more often to NBC, since AUDIENCE to the Media is akin to Oxygen to all Humanity.
ALSO – I sincerely believe that FOX News has made themselves vulnerable to losing their BASE of VIEWERS to other News Medium, which could actually be far more Fair & Balanced than FOX News claims to be, which I will comment on near the end of this Editorial.
When asked STRAIGHT-FORWARD questions by Matt Lauer on Crooked Hillary’s Emails, her LACK OF RESPECT for Confidential Designations, and her ROLE in places like Libya, where she said “NO AMERICANS DIED ON HER WATCH”, I wasn’t incredulous, since I would expect no less from a lying piece of crud like Crooked Hillary.
Matt Lauer could have figuratively NAILED CROOKED HILLARY TO THE CROSS had he wanted to, simply by asking of the 4-Americans who were MURDERED under her watch in Benghazi, if they were somehow not Americans?
AS FOR THE NEW TRUTH . . . According to Crooked Hillary (in my words), if the designation of Confidential, Secret, Top Secret, For Eyes Only – ETC . . . isn’t printed along the TOP OF THE PAGE – It doesn’t count. How’s that for a new designation?
IN ESSENCE THOUGH . . . Hillary Clinton was nervous, arrogant and not with much confidence . . . in how she spoke and dealt with serious questions from the audience.
If what we saw last night (September 7, 2016) on NBC, with a moderator who asked real questions, but somewhat spared Crooked Hillary from the VERBAL BEATING SHE REALLY DESERVED . . . Crooked Hillary will be FILLETED on a one-on-one DEBATE against Donald Trump, who is CHAFING AT THE BIT to get at her, where there will be no moderator to soften the blows.
Immediately after the debate . . . I tuned into FOX News (The Kelly File) to see how Megyn Kelly and her guests analyzed the debate. And if there was anything that resembled FAIR & BALANCED on Megyn Kelly’s show – IT WASN’T THERE.
What I saw was a FLIPPANT Woman (Megyn Kelly), who pretended to be evenhanded, who with her guests did what she could to diminish and belittle Donald Trump.
I don’t know who chose the guests for Megyn Kelly’s show, but they were anything but Fair and Balanced, and as much Anti-Trump as any reasonable person could discern from their comments.
IT SEEMS TO ME . . . that outside of the Morning Show (Fox & Friends), followed by Bill Hemmer and Martha McCallum, then Neil Cavuto, followed by Bret Baier, ending with Sean Hannity, and perhaps one or two weekend shows – THERE IS NOTHING WORTH WATCHING ON FOX NEWS, and definitely VERY LITTLE that can be considered FAIR AND BALANCED, which is touted as their FACT.
IN ALL . . . I was very pleased with what I saw and heard during the debate, and saw no reason to criticize NBC and Matt Lauer for how it was managed. And for the people who say that there weren’t sufficient answers, especially from Trump, what more could they possibly expect?
