On City Life this morning is Richard Howe arguing that there are objective journalists on MSNBC—or at least one objective journalist. He didn't say who that one objective journalist would be. I remember when I thought Chris Matthews was an objective journalist. Today I think their best shot is Rachel Maddow.
Monday night a friend of mine suggested CNN as the objective moderator for the Presidential debates. Maybe 25 years ago.
Maybe the answer is a tag team of Rachel Maddow and Shepherd Smith.
An alternative is going back to the Lincoln-Douglas style, but maybe not the full three hours per debate. For both the Senatorial and the Presidential Debates.
