The mainstream media (MSM) reps who moderated this debate — Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz — were obviously set up to assume an anti-Trump posture.Anderson Cooper administered his duties as a moderator in such a manner that he appeared to be on the Clinton campaign payroll. Cooper, who is well known to be a longtime CIA asset working in a high-profile MSM news anchor position, was obviously antagonistic toward Trump from the very beginning.
Likewise, Martha Raddatz showed her distinct preference toward Hillary Clinton. Her tone and tenor toward Trump was unnecessarily stern and aggressive. Her harsh presentation on the TV screen was more like a concentration camp guard than presidential debate moderator.
In point of fact, this debate saw Donald Trump go up against 3 opponents, not just his very feeble Democratic challenger. Hillary desperately needed the support of two MSM reps (holding her up as usual by each arm), which is precisely why the mainstream media can not be trusted to function as the impartial Fourth Estate.
The entire format was structured in such a way so as to favor Clinton. The nature of many of the questions were such that they were offensive to the American electorate. The first 20 minutes to one half hour of the debate were dedicated to the tape of Trump’s locker room talk. Instead of using the very limited 90 minutes addressing the most serious concerns facing Americans, these moderators followed up on the audience questions with utterly inane and vulgar inquiry. They did this right after attempting to shame Trump for salacious sins that the Clinton campaign has actually committed throughout this season.
By every account, both mainstream and alternative, this debate was complete rout of Hillary by The Donald. He destroyed her with facts about her own abysmal record that she could not squirm out of. The more he talked about her record the more she squirmed. Not even her utterly fake smile could lessen the damage to her now non-existent credibility and ruined reputation.
