There were concerns that Lester Holt would be this debate's Candy Crowley. He was a good deal worse.
Every question was shaped to frame a left-wing agenda. Holt hurled
numerous attacks at Trump. He only passingly offered Hillary a chance to
address her emails when Trump had already brought it up.The debate was structurally biased and Holt biased it. He repeatedly
argued with Trump about the facts. Despite the ban on fact-checking,
Holt attempted to debate Trump on the Iraq War and on the birth
certificate. It was a disgraceful and a biased performance. It is a
reminder that the structure of the debates must be changed to prevent
mainstream media from dominating it.
