Matt Lauer is a cream-puff that makes Don Lemon look like the Walter Cronkite.

I expect the hard hitting questions to include "Do you think those cat video's on youtube are cute?"..

No doubt his moderating was one of the "Demands" Trump asked for before he would agree to Debate Hillary.




Are you seriously suggesting that Lauer will be working in Trump's favor?

Do you live on this planet?


I live on the planet where Donald invited only Matt Lauer onto his plane before he deplaned for the Republican National Convention..Out of hundreds of journalists who wanted that scoop...to interview both he and his wife...and given that singular opportunity Matt Lauer's question's consisted of "How was your flight" and "Did you practice your speech?"

On his best day, Matt Lauer is a morning show host...

Yes Trump picked him.

I don't mind having Matt Lauer as the moderator. He seems pretty fair. And Trump doesn't seem to have any problem with him, as his son Eric pointed out on Fox News this morning.

BUT...

The debate moderators have been chosen!!

www.nbcnews.com...


1st Debate: Lester Holt (NBC Nightly News and a Democrat)

2nd Debate: Martha Raddatz (ABC News and a Democrat)
Anderson Cooper (CNN and a Democrat)

3rd Debate: Chris Wallace (Fox News and a Republican)


VP Debate: Elaine Quijano (CBSN- CBS' 24 hour streaming service and a Democrat) She first started as a CNN
correspondent at CNN Newsource in 2000.

Okay, so we've got 4 Democrats and 1 Republican moderating. Not good. At least Chris Wallace moderates the final and most important debate.

This is proof of the MSM bias.



""4 Democrats and 1 Republican moderating""

The debate that Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz moderate will be town hall style and the audience can ask questions. Wanna bet these questions will be vetted first and won't allow Clinton email or other CF foundation questions?

I'm sad the Third Parties aren't represented at the debates. Though knowing Gary Johnson's substance abuse that's probably a good thing.

Why only one moderator? Wouldn't it make sense to have a panel? You know, one democrat, one republican and one "independent"?

Trump will not be happy with this. Any complaints from his camp yet?

Like MotherMayEye said it's not fair that a forum can't include the 3rd party candidates. That would've given them more exposure and a chance for them to shine.

Johnson tried to sue the 15% requirement for debate qualification but he lost.

It's a "forum" not one of the 3 official debates.

It has a completely different structure, the two candidates won't even be on stage together.

Trump probably likes it, Matt Lauer is one of the few who has been neutral to positive about Trump.

Oops, no...I meant Trump won't be happy with the Presidential Debate moderators. They chose 4 democrats and 1 Republican. See earlier post above.

Good catch.

But maybe he's not as "Democrat" as many would think.


Political affiliation

On October 11, 2006, The Washington Post revealed that Wallace had been a registered Democrat for more than two decades. Wallace explained his party affiliation in terms of pragmatism, insisting that being a Democrat is the only feasible means of participating in the political process in heavily Democratic Washington, D.C. He maintained he had voted for candidates from both major parties in the past. [24]

Only one of the coolest journalists ever.

No offence Krazy but...
Please tell me your joking?
Do I need to remind you that the media has a abysmal 6% approval rating again?
And that your hero Matt belongs to that club?
The dude makes 28 million a year to professionally lie to us!

No journalists in America deserve the admiration you just gave this talking earpiece!

The fact that this is being moderated by a Clinton foundation stooge won't stop Trump. The entire establishment is out to destroy the man yet he still trudges on. Generating more votes than any republican in the last 40 years. I can literally hear these people shaking in your crocs.

Just cause I know it triggers you all...
TRUMP 2016!!

I don't know. When he recently interviewed Trump he was sort of being an ass to him. It was a little frustrating to watch.

cough cough.....

Hillary will be using assassination and death today......

I suspect Hillary and NBC will be pushing their lie about killing Osama Bin Laden and their false flag operation called 911....

I assume a rigged audience will be awaiting questions...... if we are lucky they might gloss over benghazi, health and emails.

or maybe we will see the FBI coming on stage and arresting Hillary and escorting her off stage .... HaHa.... yeah right....

It will be very interesting to see how Trump handles the rigged forum tonight and how he copes with the two on one and hand-picked audience. It's supposed to be a military audience and we know from polls that Trump is destroying Clinton on that score... we'll see if the audience mirrors that support.

Hillary will be on first. If she has any sense she will steer clear of her usual conspiracy theories and also steer clear of making her 30 minutes about Trump. If she is even smarter, she will just copy Trump's positions.

Perhaps I missed some specific info, but what leads you to conclude that the forum will be rigged?

It is being moderated by a Hillary shill and is being managed by her campaign team.

Some obvious reactions from the CF...

FLASHBACK: Matt Lauer Was Listed as a ‘Notable Member’ of Clinton Foundation Initiative



WOW...A journalist being associated with a Charitable Org!! Looks menacing!

Now explain this..

Trump gave at least $100K to Clinton Foundation
thehill.com...

I don't think Trump should be allowed to participate in the debates!!!

He is in the tank for Clinton!!!


One could hardly call the Clinton Foundation a true "CHARITY". That being said developers like Trump have to get along with anyone and everyone that can help with their objective which was getting his deals done. Im sure every other developer would and is doing the same.

Now that is a far cry from the Clinton Foundation receiving millions from the Suadi's and countless other "foreign netities" to get their favors!!!

You go ahead and try to deflect though...

Dahh the media as a whole is rigged for Hillary so why wouldn't a reporter who has supported Hillary be any different? It happened with Romney/Obama!!!
