Wednesday night’s presidential debate was riveting. I learned more about what the two candidates believe in that debate than I learned by reading a month’s worth of traditional media reports. The format — and the fact that Jim Lehrer stayed out of the way — allowed people to truly learn and assess. And since becoming an informed voter is supposedly what these debates are all about, I reject the criticism of how Lehrer handled his role as moderator. In short, I agree with Fred Barnes.
