Media bias? Nah, that never happens. Especially not in THIS campaign. And those moderators! The very models of journalistic integrity. (OK, the sarcasm is off now.)
Most pundits agree that Mike Pence won the debate last night.
We think he did an exceptional job because he was debating 2 people.
Elaine Quijano threw softballs at Kaine, let him get in all his talking points and allowed him talk over Pence. She then cut off Pence when he was answering her questions.
It was disgusting.
We’ve been here before. The alarm clock sounds and it’s another biased debate presided over by the supposed “neutral” media. Yes, it was a “Groundhog Day” debate Tuesday night at Longwood University. That’s where CBS anchor and debate moderator Elaine Quijano did her best Lester Holt impersonation (or was it Candy Crowley or maybe CNBC) – throwing hard questions mostly at Republican Gov. Mike Pence and allowing Sen. Tim Kaine to interrupt at will.
Quijano turned left from the very first question – citing 1988 liberal, Democratic vice presidential candidate Lloyd Bentsen’s comment about the responsibility of being vice president. She recalled that he said, “if tragedy should occur, the vice president has to step in without any margin for error.” That set the stage perfectly and signaled viewers that the debate was to be seen consistently from the left. And Quijano didn’t disappoint.
By a factor of 8-to-1, Quijano peppered Pence with tough question after tough question. She reserved just one for Kaine.
For conservatives, it was like Groundhog Day. If viewers saw their shadow, that will mean slightly more than one month more of the most-biased media election in human history…
…Not that it will matter either. CNN’s Jake Tapper already showed where the media would go post-debate, keying in on Kaine’s allegation that Pence couldn’t defend his “running mate’s position.” “I wonder what the media coverage is going to be like over the next day or two. …The night goes to Pence, but I don’t know about the week,” said Tapper, alluding to the media that will follow.
Tapper understated the case. We all know what the mainstream media will do. At least he admitted it.
Not every media outlet gave the night to Pence. Left-wing Fusion’s Twitter feed was hilariously biased. Univision owns Fusion and it’s the same network that brings Hispanics a one-sided view of almost everything via anchor Jorge Ramos. Ramos is too adult to be the one handling Fusion’s juvenile Twitter account, but it was just as biased – more than 30 tweets pushing Kaine or attacking Trump/Pence. Just 10 gave Pence’s message.
