The GOP agrees, again and again, to work with biased debate moderators. In fact, the bias was even worse this time than usual, and nothing said or done about it.

No doubt in my mind the msm has a big say in the elections. I am going by personal conversations with people. Some I know only get there news from the msm. They know nothing else.

What is the other choice when so much ....particularly the elderly population gets their news from the MSM.

With the yonger kids with their iPhones things may improve.

“With the younger kids with their iPhones things may improve.”

Not as long as they listen to the likes of these idiots:

It’s not just the MSM. It’s the moderators. The first moderator was a leftie, but behaved relatively decently. The next two both cheated, gave Obama the questions beforehand, and openly sided with Obama. And the GOP just continues to suck it up.

Even on the big networks, there are some interviewers who aren’t QUITE so bad. And they could have held out for Fox News to do at least ONE of the debates.
