The Town hall question and answer session, which was allegedly mishandled, in a number of ways, brings about a serious problem in the question of what a debate actually is and why do we have situations where moderators support one candidate over another.
That is a serious problem of bias it is not a question at all it is a problem.
The real question is will advertisers continue to support bias in the media…
If Tuesday night’s presidential debate proved nothing else, it demonstrated one thing: CNN’s Candy Crowley is definitely not an “uncommitted voter.” The moderator’s handling of the town-hall debate at Hofstra University was heavy-handed and one-sided throughout, not merely giving more time to President Obama, but repeatedly cutting off Mitt Romney when the Republican attempted to counter accusations from the president.
Reports surfaced days before the Townhall style so called debate that the moderator might detour from the path that both sides felt was less of a role, but many people now wonder what was going on, a moderator is neutral by nature not partisan by design.
What this suggests is media malfeasance.
When you look at the situation and the questions that were asked it is obvious that there were moments when the voters that were represented were not really undecided at all.
What was truly unfair to just about anyone that really matters is the Advertisers.
They supported this travesty of an insult to the intelligence of Americans all over the world.
They may have paid fees and then to have the entire process destroyed by this shrill of a woman, (allegedly)
Amazing stuff here folks, but will it work are Americans really as stupid as the media appears to be, (allegedly, but what really is interesting here is how this even was so one sided.

At one point, after Obama had repeated his campaign accusation that Romney “said we should let Detroit go bankrupt,” Romney devoted part of his next reponse to rebutting the mischaracterization: “My plan was to have [auto companies] go through bankruptcy like 7-Eleven did and Macy’s and Continental Airlines and come out stronger. And I know he keeps saying, you want to take Detroit bankrupt. Well, the president took Detroit bankrupt. You took General Motors bankrupt. You took Chrysler bankrupt. So when you say that I wanted to take the auto industry bankrupt, you actually did.” The process of bankruptcy was necessary, Romney said, “to get those companies back on their feet, so they could start hiring more people. That was precisely what I recommended and ultimately what happened.”
