Washington Post:

CNN’s John King is in an unusual position on Thursday night. He will moderate the last and maybe most decisive debate before the South Carolina primary. There is a lot at stake, including rehabilitating his own reputation.

You may recall back in June when he moderated the Republican debate in New Hampshire. At the time I wrote:

[M]oderator John King distinguished himself as the worst moderator in the history of televised debates. He interrupted and cut off the candidates, making both himself and time limits an unwelcomed intrusion. He very annoyingly pestered the candidates with “this or that” — Elvis or Johnny Cash, Connan or Leno, etc. Had he not used up precious time during the substantive part of the debate, this might have been excusable. (His curious grunting will be fodder for Saturday Night Live spoofing.)

Well as long as it's not all MSM members, we can expect a real fair and unbiased approach, by this panel.

Do you think this will get brought up tonight?

 

Rick Santorum warned conservative activists not to “nominate Tweedle Dum or Tweedle Dee” at a rally Thursday just hours before the final South Carolina presidential debate.

I seem to recall reading recently that King is going to let them just after each other. Probably just cough and snort from time-to-time. :)

 

Does this debate have a theme tonite? Economy, foreign policy, Newt's indiscretions, Mitt's money in the Caymans, racism on the right, etc?

 

It just hit me. With Perry gone, RP may get more face time tonite. That'll be a big help.

I'm all for RP getting face time. I hope he spends it all on foreign policy and drug law enforcement.

Not familiar with Erin Burnett so this is what wiki says:

 

Erin Isabelle Burnett (born July 2, 1976) is the anchor of CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront. [1] She was the co-anchor of CNBC's Squawk on the Street program and the host of CNBC's Street Signs program. She also appeared on NBC's Meet the Press, Today, MSNBC's Morning Joe, and NBC Nightly News, as well as occasional appearances on The Apprentice as an advisor to Donald Trump. She is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

 

Burnett has hosted a number of documentaries filmed outside of the United States: "India Rising: The New Empire",[2] "The Russian Gamble", and "Dollars & Danger: Africa, The Final Investment Frontier.[3] She has focused extensively on the Middle East as well, reporting live from across the region and hosting documentaries including: "On Assignment: Iraq", "Big Money & the Middle East", "City of Money and Mystery" and "The Forbidden Zone".

She is engaged to Citigroup executive David Rubulotta.

On December 7, 2010, Burnett did an investigative report on chemical giant Transammonia[23] doing business in Iran. She reported that a Transammonia subsidiary—100% owned by Transammonia in the United States—purchased ammonia from Iran. In the same report, Burnett said according to an economic plan released by the Iranian government, Iran was trying to increase ammonia production by 60 percent over the next five years. She also mentioned that ammonia is used for explosives, including roadside bombs in Afghanistan. On Dec. 13, 2010, as a result of the CNBC report, Transammonia sent a press release to Congressional leaders stating that Transammonia's Swiss subsidiary would not enter into new contracts with Iranian companies, and would wind down its business with Iran "as soon as possible."[24]

 

Shortly after arriving at CNN, on October 4, 2011, Burnett did a segment on the Occupy Wall Street protests titled "Seriously?" in which she was critical of the protestors. Media watchdog groups, including Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, claimed Burnett's reporting was purposely inaccurate in order to paint the protestors in a negative light. In response to the criticism, CNN issued a statement saying, "We support Erin and the OutFront team and we respect that there will be a range of opinions on any given story."[25]

I remember Erin Burnett being the Co-Host with Mark Haines on CNBC when CNBC was actually a decent business channel to watch. Mark Haines died suddenly a few months back and she moved on to CNN. Maybe her show was not the same after he was gone. She was decent there.

So far, she has seemed decent. I don't know who Soledad is either. ha.

 

 

Oh, I know who she is! :rolleyes: That's why I'm waiting to see what kind of questions she'll ask.

My first thought is that you can tell that it is a Republican debate simply by the fact that virtually everyone on the audience had their hands over their hearts for the Anthem. Won't see that at any Dimocrat function.
