    A moderator's job is not to be subservient


    In a presidential debate, a moderator has to wear multiple hats.

    The duties of a presidential debate moderator are different from those of an academic or traditional moderator, said Dick Haven, an emeritus professor of communication at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

    The first responsibility of a presidential debate moderator is to be the microphone controller, or "MC," who directs the event.

    "They have to be a time keeper and try to keep the event on schedule to get as many questions as possible whatever it may be," Haven said.

    The moderator also has to be a referee to some extent.

    "They have to try to be injecting in ways that keeps it fair," Haven said. "Fair to how much time each person gets to answer a question or to express an opinion or respond to another person."

    Although this is the most controversial part, there are times where the debate moderator needs to interject and challenge the veracity of a comment the candidate made, Haven said.

    Of the presidential debates held thus far — which were moderated by Elaine Quijano, Anderson Cooper, Martha Raddatz, and Lester Holt — Haven said he thinks NBC’s Holt handled the moderator duties the best, despite having a record audience of more than 84 million viewers and losing control at times.

    Haven, whose areas of expertise include American political discourse and American public address, said instead of interjecting and challenging the truthfulness of the candidates' remarks, Holt framed it as a question.

    Some have said Holt should've had more control of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's microphone, but Haven said he thinks that would lead to more controversy about the role of the moderator and less of a free flowing debate.

    "He made the decision to pull back a little bit and let the candidates kind of sell themselves and, of course, that led the audience to make decisions about the behavior of the candidates as well as what the candidates argued rather than the moderator trying to do that by fact checking or by stepping in and arguing with one candidate or another," Haven said of Holt.

    In any case, Haven said being a presidential moderator is a tough job.

    "I'm not sure this is any job anyone wants to really apply for because you're almost in a no-win situation," Haven said. "You have to be careful how much you do of each element."

    The third and final presidential debate will be moderated by Fox News Channel's Chris Wallace on Wednesday, Oct.19

    4me what does the word "moderate" used as a NOUN mean? In Merriam Webster's It says "the person in charge of a meeting," the Example is The moderator should make sure everyone gets a chance to speak. Does that mean the moderator gets to slander, debase and lecture ANY one at the meeting? I suggest a few hundred thousand Republican supporters go to the next democrat socialist town hall and kick in the door and stand at the exits. when the moderator jumps the president BOOOOOOOOOO SO LOUD THE WINDOWS SHAKE. Time to take it to them for a change. They call for us to be shouted down as we and our families go about our lives, they call for us to be beaten, they call for us to be fired from our jobs. they try to stop us from exercising our first and second amendment rights and they are trying to steal our votes. When are we going to reply with their own tactics IN TRIPLICATE. I say it is past due to slap them DOWN.

    My wife has had a phone surgically attached to her arm since she retired, FB is the worst thing I know of for any type of relationship, We do good because she always puts it down and talks to me when I say something, and she always comes and includes me in any story or post she thinks I would like to know about. BUT the distraction for a lot of people is too much to handle. I don't trust anything electronic or any company to not have an ulterior motive in anything they do, I also do not trust the NSA not to compile a millisecond sequenced online dossier on every American citizen even if it is not Constitutional.

    We are trying to decide what the idea of the Town Hall with Trump is. The hosts seem to always be deeply connected to the biden family and the democrat party, seems like the idea of a neutral host is lost on the people who set these up. Why not then let ME or Sean Hannity host the biden Town Hall? That would be as unbiased and fair as the Trump selections.

    UHHHH lets see I didn't watch this, was this a debate or a TOWN HALL? There is a HOST at a Town Hall event, no need for a moderator. The host is not there to harass the Person who is the object of the town hall, and there is not supposed to be an other party only audience. biden got a democrat host and a democrat audience too wonder why that is? REALITY talks and BULLSHIT WALKS!!! There is no way to defend the actions of the so called "mainstream" media and the debate panel they are worthless in my opinion and it is glaringly evident how ultra biased to the point of being criminally negligent in their duty to the American People they are. OBTW, 19 OCT 2020 is not a Wednesday it is a Monday. I think the debate is the Thursday 22 OCT 2020.
