C-SPAN political editor Steve Scully, who was chosen to moderate the second presidential debate between Joe Biden and President Trump on Oct. 15, has a history of working as an intern for Senator Joe Biden in college.
“While attending college, he served as an intern in the office of Delaware Sen. Joseph R. Biden, and later a staff assistant in Sen. Edward M. Kennedy’s media affairs office,” Utah Valley University noted.
The second presidential debate, scheduled for October 15, will be moderated by Steve Scully, the political editor at C-SPAN and host of Washington Journal, who once worked as an intern for Senator Joe Biden in college, later working as a staff assistant in Sen. Edward M. Kennedy’s communication office.
In an interview with Journalism Jobs in May 2011, when he was asked, “Has the quality of broadcast journalism decreased over the past five years?”, Scully took the opportunity to rip Fox News, stating, “I think what has gone downhill is when cable networks get caught in all the titillating news of the day when they should be focusing more on the things that are important to people, like following the money and the state of the nation. Having said that, if you’re sick and tired of watching Laci Peterson on the Fox News Channel, then you can come on to C-SPAN and understand the process that we do in following it.” More

It doesn’t matter! President Trump is going to whip them like a red-headed stepchild!
FAIR DEBATES?! Presidential Debates Commission chooses FORMER BIDEN INTERN Steve Scully C-SPAN to moderate a Trump-Biden Debate. Also Chris Wallace FOX (a major Trump hater) & Kristen Welker NBC (far left Trump hater) to moderate debates. THIS IS SHAMEFUL!https://t.co/cGGifWM8GI

How about a debate where the Left chooses one moderator and the Right chooses one moderator? It would be more fair than what we have now.

It’s always been Trump v the media. The American people will be able to see who Trump’s real opponent is and Trump will once again win over voters as the underdog fighting the corrupt political and media elite.
