    “Fox News is told that Welker deactivated her own account and was not asked to by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), according to an NBC source.”

    The 2020 presidential debate process has been a train wreck. The first debate with Chris Wallace of FOX News was terrible, largely due to Wallace himself who, at times, argued with Trump more than Biden did.

    Then Steve Scully, the moderator of the second debate came under scrutiny for anti-Trump bias. The second debate has been cancelled as Scully’s Twitter account is being investigated for a supposed hacking that’s about as believable as the investigation of Joy Reid’s old blog.

    Now the moderator of the third debate, Kristen Welker of NBC, has deactivated her Twitter account because people noticed anti-Trump bias in her feed.

    Joseph A. Wulfsohn reports at FOX News:

    Third debate moderator Kristen Welker’s Twitter account deactivated amid Steve Scully controversy

    The Twitter account of NBC News correspondent and third presidential debate moderator Kristen Welker has been deactivated on Friday amid the tweeting controversy surrounding C-SPAN host Steve Scully.

    Hours after Scully’s Twitter account was deleted following an alleged hacking that took place on Thursday night, Welker’s own account was no longer active.

    Fox News is told that Welker deactivated her own account and was not asked to by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), according to an NBC source.

    Fox News reached out to the CPD and NBC News for comment.

    Unbiased debate moderators should not feel the need to hide their social media commentary.

    This leads me back to a question I have been asking for weeks. Why does every presidential debate have to be moderated by a liberal journalist?

    Even the VP debate moderator Susan Page, who did a slightly better job, is obviously part of the liberal establishment:

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has a suggestion: Let’s end the farce known as the Commission on Presidential Debates.

    From Gingrich360:

    Abolish the Debate Commission

    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…

    It’s almost as if this is another haggard institution, devoted to its grip on power, that wanted to bend the rules in order to influence the election — the same thing we’ve seen from so many Deep State foes of President Trump.

    Republicans must stop agreeing to debates where the fight is two against one.

    This should have ended after the Candy Crowley debacle of 2012.

    Their should be two moderators at each debate; one chosen by each candidate. How would Biden do in a debate where he has to answer questions from the honey badger, VDH, and Mollie? Could Biden really pick anyone worse for President Trump than the debate commission has?

    No more debates, please!

    Let’s take a couple of trips down memory lane. First, regarding Steve Scully:

    “C-SPAN’s statement said Scully “did not originate the tweet” and added that the CPD was investigating the incident “with the help of authorities.” In its own statement, CPD said it “it had reported the apparent hack to the FBI and Twitter” as part of its investigation.

    Twitter declined to comment when asked to confirm whether or not Scully’s account was hacked. Twitter also did not immediately respond to Fox News’ inquiry about whether Scully deleted his own account or if Twitter had taken it down as part of a potential investigation.

    Scully himself has not publicly commented on the controversy and could not be reached for comment.”

    Anthony Weiner also twisted himself into a pretzel to avoid filing any police report himself. Because, like Scully now, Weiner knew damned well his account hadn’t been hacked and he had sent the tweet. So if he went to the police and filed a report he would have knowingly filed a false police report (as it turned out Weiner the newly released felon and now registered-sex-offender-for-life had more important things to worry about; so far it doesn’t appear Scully has sent anyone dick pics). But, like Weiner, he wants to get others to make the complaint on his behalf. They can’t be accused of filing a false report because they can claim they believed Scully/Weiner. And Scully/Weiner can claim they never asked the third parties to file a complaint.

    Another trip down memory lane. Kirsten Welker is now scrubbing her social media presence. So did the esteemed Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford before she contacted members of her Kali congressional delegation (here’s a group photo):

    Because of course Blasey-Ford is a rabid anti-Trump leftist partisan (her lawyer accidentally let the truth slip out). So is Welker. That’s what both of them had to lie about to pull off their frauds.
