The October 15th Trump-Biden Debate Will Be Less Partisan

Recommended Posts

Just kidding! You thought they would bring in a neutral party? Silly human. 

Steve Scully, rescuer of debates

 

Unruly, chaotic, fiery, cacophonous and a hot mess: The first debate between President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden gave journalists a chance to trot out their fanciest adjectives and prose. The fickle press, however, has already returned to assorted Trump bashing, speculation and wishful thinking about a Biden victory or a reinvented nation.

But wait. Let’s not forget that another debate looms on the calendar. This one promises to present a stark contrast to Tuesday’s bout. For one thing, experts and critics are already proposing to cancel future debates or launch format changes to quell all that chaos and cacophony.

Then there is the moderator to consider.

 

When debate day dawns on Oct. 15 the moderator will be none other than Steve Scully, senior political editor of C-SPAN. He is a host and commentator for the public affairs channel who is informed and fair, focused and unflappable. He has been with C-SPAN for 30 years.

During that time, Mr. Scully has wrangled live calls from passionate viewers around the world, interviewed presidents and served as senior producer for C-SPAN’s White House coverage. Oh, and he has also attended every presidential convention since 1980.

 

Politico has praised Mr. Scully for his “evenhandedness.” The New Hampshire Union Leader describes him as “the gold standard for intelligent and impartial handling of conversation or debate on any political issue.”

Needless to say, the culture and style of the second debate may just evolve into a significant event. The polished Mr. Scully could very well increase voter interest and steer the candidates into a meaningful debate at a critical time.

The VP debate should draw a bigger crowd than usual. Who moderates than one?
