The problem is that this is someone with a direct personal tie to Obama. Why didn't ABC put up Jake Tapper rather than her.

Rumor is that Romney will be in the same building as the debate moderator at the upcoming debate. That's a direct personal tie, how can we allow this to happen?

it's not news, but people desperately want it to be, so the fact that it's not is proof positive that the media is in the tank for obomber

I am still wondering why the media has not reported that the ad being run by Obama citing the one study to support that Romney's tax plan will creSt trillions on deficits is a complete farce. The professor and author if the report stated that he had absolutely no idea how they could get that from his study.

Either the Obama admin are plain liars, or his staff is too dense to actually understand the report or its claims...I am getting it is both.

It was over 20 years ago, and VP debates haven't had a big swing on elections in a long time.

What is the point of a biased debate moderator? I guess I could see it affecting something if the candidates actually answered the questions they were asked, but thats more of a "cross that bridge when you get to it" situation

the media does not include punditry and specific examinations in its reports on candidates. that's not its job. its job is to provide raw, unbiased data.

if a fact-checking organization came out and made a splash by pointing out inaccuracies in campaign promises, you would expect to see them report it regardless of candidate. but the presentation would not be "romney tells blatant lies about taxes." it would be "a PAC for the president has come out publicly chastising romney for what they say is a patently false claim."

do you see what i'm getting at? (i'm not arguing about the legitimacy of the ad you're talking about, rather illustrating the media/story dynamic.)

It wasn't a fact checking group. It was the actual professor and author of the report who stated that their claim is inaccurate, baseless, and downright wrong.

If that had been a repub who made that statement, I guarantee you the media would be on it.

Posted the article quoting the professor in another thread. Don't have the link on my iPhone.

Article was written by John Hinderaker quoting Professir Rosen from Princeton....the author if the study they "claim" supports their assertions,

Same thing happened for the last VP debate. The moderator was actually writing a book on Obama.

Roles are reversed this time. Everyone figured Biden would wipe the floor with Palin last time, and for the most part she avoided a knockout blow. Now people expect Ryan to make Biden look silly.
