The moderators need to stop interrupting!

All of the candidates had portions of their messages rendered unintelligible by moderators talking over them to say that their time was up. That has to stop.

Perhaps some sort of clock visible to the candidates can be arranged to warn them that their microphones will go dead when their time expires, or even more sophisticated, allot each candidate an equal share of time for the entire debate and let them portion that time the way time is budgeted by chess opponents using a chess clock.

But however it's done, let the candidates themselves take responsibility for fitting their messages into the time allotted to them. It serves the interest of no one on our side to truncate sentences and turn them into unclear fragments.

1. So do the candidates who aren't on screen

 

And for god sakes don’t keep your hand raised like a brown nosing college student while others are talking. They’ll get back you for more than your fair share of time already. And you know who I am talking about. Oooooh oooh mister kotter pick me pick me!

2. Thank you! Hand-raising is inappropriate for this format.
