This could be an interesting way to watch them both:

How can I watch them?

Follow CNN for live coverage of both town halls. CNN.com will have live coverage, analysis and fact checking of the competing town halls all in one place.




CNN is participating in this travesty? Shame on them, too.

Yeah, I'm not happy with NBC at all....

When Chris Hayes signed off on MSNBC last night, he looked right into the camera and said, "Well, I won't be here tomorrow night, because...." Rachel called it a pregnant pause.

So, ummmmm....

I watched Trump. Savannah Guthrie did a pretty good job of pushing back at him repeatedly.

And you'll be pleased to hear that 85% of people who WEAR masks will GET coronavirus. That is supposedly from the CDC.

So Trump is "okay" if you WANT to wear a mask, but because masks are dangerous, people shouldn't be FORCED to wear one.

Oh, and you'll be doubly pleased to hear that we have a CURE for the coronavirus! So open everything up.

Good heavens, he really said all that?

As somebody said recently, the biggest source of misinformation about the coronavirus is Donald Trump.

I looked at the TV lineup for tonight to see what would be on following the two town hall broadcasts and was astonished to discover they won't be broadcast here until 8:00 PDT. Usually they're broadcast here at 5:00 when they're scheduled for 8:00 in the east. I have no idea why we're going to get it delayed.

Re: Presidential and Vice Presidential debates 2020


Yeah, he really said all that.

And a mountain of OTHER ridiculous things....

Oh, there was a young lady who asked about what he was doing to help the dreamers.

Trump said that most people don't know that DACA and the dreamers are two separate things. The dreamers came into the US legally, so he's helping them. But for DACA, he's building the wall longer and higher to keep the Mexicans out. Because they have MUCH more of the plague in Mexico than in the US, so we have to keep them out. But the dreamers? He's the best person in the world to be helping them.

Savannah Guthrie jumped right in to say DACA is the act that CREATED the dreamers, and that the Trump Administration STOPPED taking applications altogether from the dreamers. Trump just told her she was wrong and futzed around about illegal immigration.

The whole interview was a look inside Trump's brain. I heard echoes.

Re: Presidential and Vice Presidential debates 2020


Oh!

And one more thing.

Savannah pressed Trump -- HARD -- on whether he took a covid test the night of his last debate, when the Debate Commission had required it for participation.

Well, he couldn't remember.

Savannah asked him when his last negative test was before the debate. He didn't know. He said that he's getting tests all the time, and she should ask the doctors. (Of course, the doctors are refusing to talk because of HIPAA.)

So Savannah asked him if he was tested every day. No, no. Just some days. She came back at him, saying that when he KNEW he was supposed to be tested the day of the debate, wouldn't he REMEMBER having been tested that day? No, no, he couldn't remember....

He couldn't remember if he was tested the day of the debate? When that was one of the ground rules?

Holy !@#$, that means he wasn't tested the day of the debate. That means he was a danger to Joe Biden and Chris Wallace.

Holy !@#$!

Re: Presidential and Vice Presidential debates 2020


The lineup was wrong, Robbie. I saw the first few minutes of Trump at 5. I looked on ABC and couldn't get Biden, but I thought maybe his debate started at 9, which would be 6, and I was in bed by 5:09.

I saw Trump say he didn't know whether he was tested the day before or the day of the debate. Sleep saved me from the other things he said that Lis reported.

Re: Presidential and Vice Presidential debates 2020


I wish I had stayed awake to see it. Here's a passage from a WaPo article about it:

Guthrie faced both praise and opprobrium on social media, where conservative critics lobbed insults at her and many Democrats praised her.

“Savannah Guthrie is showing herself to be a partisan hack tonight,” Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe wrote on Twitter. “Has any media person ever challenged Biden like Savannah Guthrie is with Trump?” asked Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

Tim Murtaugh, director of communications for Trump’s campaign, said that “Savannah Guthrie is attacking the President like she openly hates him.”

On the other side, “Pod Save America” co-host Jon Favreau wrote: “I would like to propose a Trump town hall moderated by @SavannahGuthrie every night between now and election day."

Well, I'll have to side with those who praise Savannah Guthrie. She fact checked every Trump lie in real time and was well prepared for his usual deflections and lies. She had good questions prepared, and she routinely pressed back on Trump when he didn't answer audience questions. She wasn't at ALL hateful; she was doing her job as a moderator and journalist.

I am really proud of her. I didn't know who she was. NBC has redeemed itself a little for the conflict with Joe.

Savannah Guthrie has been with NBC for some time now and has been cohost of the Today Show for the past 8 years.

Re: Presidential and Vice Presidential debates 2020


Biden’s ABC town hall ratings beat Trump’s three-network NBC event

The final Nielsen data includes streaming as well as broadcast figures for Thursday night’s rival shows.

By Elahe Izadi
Oct. 16, 2020

This story, originally published at 2:21 p.m., has been updated with Nielsen’s final ratings count.

Nearly 700,000 more viewers on Thursday watched former vice president Joe Biden’s town hall live on television than those who watched President Trump’s, according to data released Friday afternoon by measurement company Nielsen.

Biden’s town hall on ABC averaged 14.1 million viewers, compared to about 13.5 million for Trump’s NBC town hall. The higher figure for Biden’s event is particularly surprising given that he appeared just on one network, compared to Trump, whose town hall was simulcast on MSNBC and CNBC.

Re: Presidential and Vice Presidential debates 2020


Oh, thank goodness!!!!

(NBC News) - Trump and Biden will have mics cut during opponent's answers in final debate

President Donald Trump and Joe Biden will have their microphones cut off during Thursday’s final presidential debate while their opponent delivers initial two-minute answers to each debate topic, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced Monday. Both microphones will be on during open-discussion segments of the debate.

Trump and Biden’s only previous debate last month was marred by frequent interruptions from Trump, leading to calls for the debate moderator to have the ability to cut off each candidate’s microphone while their opponent spoke.
