CNN debate "moderator"s husband involved in Hunter laptop coverup letter | Eastern North Carolina Now

why is someone like this a "moderator"


Most of the criticism of the leftwing moderators for the CNN debate has been centered on ultra-partisan Democrat Jake Tapper, but the concerns are just as strong on the other "moderator" Dana Bash.  She is also a very partisan Democrat and a Trump hater like Tapper.

Dana Bash's husband Jeremy Bash was one of the 51 "intelligence experts" who signed the bogus letter claiming that the Hunter Biden laptop was "Russian disinformation".  This letter was written and distributed to save Joe Biden's bacon in the election many months AFTER the FBI had verified that the Hunter Biden laptop was authentic and unadulterated.  Bash was one of what the New York Post called the 51 "spies who lie".  Now his wife is a debate "moderator".

CNN is very sensitive about the rampant bias of the two "moderators" they have selected.  When a Trump campaign spokeswoman tried to mention the rabid anti-Trump history of Jake Tapper during an on-air interview, she was cut off and not allowed to talk.  CNN has demonstrated its bias in campaign debates when they were caught in a previous election giving their debate questions ahead of time to Hillary Clinton.  Very likely they will do the same for Biden.

As an article in The Federalist pointed out, Trump's biggest opponents in the debate will be the "moderators", not Biden.

CNN should be called Crooked News Network.

The problem with biased liberal debate moderators predates Trump by decades, and has been a concern of conservatives long before Trump. The idea is a FAIR debate, and having two moderators, one chosen by each side would accomplish that no matter who is running. With your TDS, your tunnel vision focuses just on Trump, but this has been a much larger and older problem. The important thing is to fix it so debates are fair to both candidates.

Actually the MAGA cry seems to be: everyone hates me, and it isn't fair. At some point it just gets old.

Bobbie, many conservatives want to improve the fairness and objectivity of presidential debates, which has been badly needed for a long time. That is why the RNC cut its involvment with the Presidential Debate Commission last year, before even knowing who the nominee would be. Left wing "journalists" should not have a monopoly on control of presidential debates. Yeah, Trump kicked Biden's ass, but the issue going forward is lets establish a level playing field for future presidential debates. Tapper and Bash could have been more blatant in skewing questions than they were, and the back that their bias and the network's bias was made so public probably stopped them from doing more than they did.

What is really needed for future debates is to let each candidate choose one moderator. Among other things, if a moderator got out of hand with such an arrangement, it would be clear to voters which candidate was to blame for them.

MAGA - always an excuse. Even when. Most think Trump wion, they can’t stop complaining.
MAGA - it won’t end well

As expected the leftie CNN moderators tried to spin their questions to the left. It would have been better to have left out the editorial comment aspects of their questions and asked them in a more neutral way. It was also appalling that there was no opening statements allowed. Biden was clearly out of it the whole debate.

My take on the debate:
I didn't learn anything new.

I knew JB was old, and man is he old.
JB fumbled around with his words and often didn't track.
JB is right, America is a great county and the economy is pretty good.
JB will accept the results of the election.
I'm mad at the democrats for not getting a replacement 3 years ago. DT is very beatable.

I knew DT was a narcissistic pin head, and boy is he ever.
DT wouldn't answer the questions and just repeated lies.
DT is right, the boarder is a mess, but offered no solutuons.
DT will accept the results of the election if he wins, but not if he loses.
I'm mad at republicans for lining up behind this grifter. JB is very beatable.

I expected CNN to do a good job, and they did.

That muted mics rule may allow a moderator dirty trick that Dana Bash tried to pull off at the GOP primary debate that RNC foolishly allowd CNN to host. She asked the candidates to raise their hand if they agreed with her climate alarmist statement. Fortunately, the mics were not muted and Governor deSantis immediately challenged her on her postion, followed by Vivek Ramaswammy. With muted mics, they could not have done that, and a "raise your hand" format is an absurdity.

Every American should be logging strong complaints to CNN who shamelessly chose two of the most bias and dishonest reporters (refuse to call them journalists) to”moderate” the only thing they will moderate will be Biden’s repeated prolonged lapses, gafts and outright lies. The rest of the time the will desperately attempt to disparage and condemn Donald Trump. Their hatred of Donald Trump is pathological CNN is America’s Soviet Pravda. They lie when the truth would do better.

Grow a brain. Trump can handle the 3 against 1 format he is dealing with tonight, but we really need to end the practice of presidential debates being run by leftist moderators, which has been going on for some time. We need a level playing field for presidential candidates and that means neutral moderators or one chosen by each side. The fact that CNN cheats on behalf of their favored candidates was proven beyond a shadow of a doubt when they were caught giving Hillary Clinton the debate questions ahead of time, something they are likely to have also done for Biden. Con artists like CNN should never be allowed to chose moderators or questions when they have that history. What happens in 2024 is already set, but the bigger concern is putting a stop to the bias for 2028 and beyond.

Grow a spine. Trump will do fine. Those that like him, will still like him. The rest of us know he is a lunatic. He really has nothing to lose.

Now, it turns out that Jeremy Bash, who was the husband of CNN debate moderator Dana Bash, was on the payroll as a CIA contractor at the time he signed that letter trying to cover up the Hunter Biden laptop. I hope it is possible to prosecute and jail some of these scoundrels.

Republicans must remember the bungling on this set of debates that let the Democrats set the rules, and bad ones at that. Republicans need to come out early with their expected standards. One needs to deal with moderators, and probably the fairest thing is to have two and let each side name one of them. The other has to do with questions, and the Lincoln-Douglas standard of having the campaigns come up with them or at least some of them is a good one. It is too late for this election cycle, but we simply have to get this right in 2028.
