[Ed. – Point taken. The commission is a relic of the days when the only source of news was the three broadcast networks and daily newspapers, and Americans took it on blind faith that these were honest brokers..]
The time has come to recognize how arrogant, biased, and obsolete the Commission on Presidential Debates has become. It is an engine of insider Washington Establishment domination of the political process. Its moderators all represent the Washington Establishment – and the norm is hostility to Republican candidates.
The commission has no right to independently control the debate process. Now, it is standing in the way of what the American people want and seeking to further its own insider agenda.
Yesterday, the commission announced unilaterally it was killing the debate format, and instead imposing a virtual debate. This decision was made with no consultation with the Trump campaign, let alone approval for such a dramatic election-influencing shift.
This is what we can expect from the arrogance of a collection of establishment figures averaging 73 years of age.
