Will Presidential Debate Moderators Really Not Challenge Lies?

Will Presidential Debate Moderators Really Not Challenge Lies?
Chris Wallace says it isn’t his job to “truth squad,” though some journalists strongly disagree.

Michael Calderone Senior Media Reporter, The Huffington Post

NEW YORK ― When Donald Trump hits the debate stage in a few weeks with Hillary Clinton, it’s not hard to imagine the Republican nominee challenging his Democratic rival’s foreign policy judgment by falsely claiming ― as he’s done dozens of times ― to have been a staunch critic of the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq.

“Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace, the moderator for the third presidential debate, said in a Sunday interview that it isn’t his role to call out the candidates’ false claims.

“That’s not my job,” Wallace told his Fox News colleague Howard Kurtz. “I do not believe that it’s my job to be a truth squad.”

Fox News’ Presidential Debate Moderator Says He’ll Let Candidates Lie

Fox News’ Presidential Debate Moderator Says He’ll Let Candidates Lie
Anything goes.
Judd LegumFollow Editor-In-Chief, ThinkProgress

For the first time, Fox News has been selected to moderate a presidential debate.

The Presidential Debate Commission selected Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, to moderate the third presidential debate, scheduled for October 19 in Las Vegas.

Wallace appeared on Fox News’ Media Buzz to discuss what his selection meant to him personally and “what it means to Fox News.”
The host of the program, Howard Kurtz, asked Wallace, “What do you do if they make assertions that you know to be untrue?”

“That’s not my job,” Wallace replied, without skipping a beat. “It’s not my job to be a truth squad.”

Giuliani: Trump no longer wants mass deportations

Giuliani: Trump no longer wants mass deportations
Eric Bradner Updated 2:03 PM ET, Sun September 4, 2016

Washington (CNN)One of Donald Trump's top supporters insisted Sunday that the Republican nominee is backing away from one of his most controversial immigration proposals: mass deportations.

In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union," former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Trump doesn't want to break up immigrant families in America.
Giuliani told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" that Trump "would find it very, very difficult to throw out a family that has been here for 15 years and they have three children, two of whom are citizens. That is not the kind of America he wants."

Oklahoma Shuts Down Energy Companies' Disposal Wells In Area Of Strong Quake

Oklahoma Shuts Down Energy Companies' Disposal Wells In Area Of Strong Quake
September 4, 20169:24 AM ET BILL CHAPPELL

After one of the strongest earthquakes ever to hit Oklahoma struck Saturday, state regulators ordered oil and gas companies to shut down all their wastewater disposal wells in a 725-square-mile area around the site of the quake's epicenter near Pawnee.

The seismic activity immediately raised suspicions that it was linked to injection wells that oil and gas companies use as part of fracking and other operations.

Donald Trump's appearance at an African-American church in Detroit went wrong, as the congregation rejected Trump by not showing up to hear him speak.

Arizona GOP Releases ‘Wanted’ Poster With Bullet Holes Around Democratic Candidate’s Face

Arizona GOP Releases ‘Wanted’ Poster With Bullet Holes Around Democratic Candidate’s Face
Alice OllsteinFollow Politics Reporter @ThinkProgress

The image has outraged many in the state, as it comes just five years after another Arizona Democratic congresswoman was shot in the head at a public event.

Former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ), who survived the attempted assassination in 2011 but remains partially paralyzed with limited speech, joined the chorus of voices demanding the state GOP remove the “irresponsible” poster and apologize.

When Hillary Clinton Is President, We Will Get To Eat SO MANY TACOS

When Hillary Clinton Is President, We Will Get To Eat SO MANY TACOS
By Evan Hurst - September 2, 2016


Do you like to have the tacos? We are fans of having the tacos and we do not mean like Taco Bell, although Taco Bell is gorgeous and godly in its own way. We also do not mean like that taco bowl trash the Trump Tower mess hall cuts up into itty bitty bite-sized pieces so Donald Trump is able to grasp it with his little rat fingers.
