Meet Your 2016 Presidential Debate Moderators

The Commission on Presidential Debates has announced the moderators for the three upcoming presidential debates and the vice presidential debate, and they’ve taken none of our suggestions.

Lester Holt of NBC Nightly News will moderate the first one, Martha Raddatz of ABC and Anderson Cooper of CNN will moderate the second debate in the format of a town meeting and Chris Wallace of Fox News will moderate the final one just three weeks before the election. Elaine Quijano of CBS News will moderate the vice presidential debate.

This mix of moderators is one of the most diverse groups set to moderate the election.

Debates have historically allowed candidates to reach out to reluctant voters and reshape the public’s view of them publicly.

The first debate will be held September 26.

Again, they should have taken some of our suggestions.
