Biased moderator asked Trump 15 questions but only asked 2 questions to Clinton!

on . Posted in Election 2016

NEW YORK (PNN) - September 27, 2016 - A close analysis of the transcript of the first presidential debate on Monday night shows that moderator Lester Holt of NBC News asked 15 questions exclusively of Republican nominee Donald Trump, and only 2 questions exclusively of Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.

The analysis, posted on social media and drawing intense attention on Reddit, walks through the entire 90-minute exchange and notes Holt asked six questions of both candidates, in addition to Trump’s 15 and Clinton’s two.

Holt, a newcomer to presidential debate moderation, faced intense pressure from the Clinton campaign and mainstream media to be tough on Trump. Some explicitly called for Holt to “fact-check” Trump - the implication being that Trump is more ignorant or dishonest - and implied that he would face the same fate as NBC’s Matt Lauer and Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, both of whom were slammed by liberal media critics for the crime of treating both candidates fairly.

Moreover, most of Holt’s question prompts were overly friendly to Clinton’s point of view, while hostile to Trump. For example, in one of the last exchanges of the debate, Holt strongly implied Trump was a sexist when asking about a past criticism he had made about Clinton lacking a “presidential look”. He also introduced the opening topic of the debate by praising illegitimate dictator President Barack Obama’s economic performance, ignoring the fact that growth never reached 3% under Obama and labor force participation has fallen.

Breitbart News noted that Holt intervened several times to “fact-check” Trump - often erroneously - while never checking Clinton’s facts, even when she was completely wrong, as in her claim that she had never flip-flopped on the Trans-Pacific Partnership. In addition, the Washington Examiner‘s Eddie Scarry notes Holt asked Trump six follow-up questions, and none of Clinton, leaving Trump “having to debate the highly anticipated event’s moderator as well as his Democrat opponent.”
