Response to onecaliberal (Original post)

8. Having not been able to

watch it live, I read through the WaPo's annotated transcript this am. As so many in the comments noted, Clinton was asked not to attack her opponent. Instead, she basically answered the questions she was asked although nearly 1/3 of her allocated time was spent on emails and her "judgment." Of course.

Per the transcript, Trump evaded the questions - and was generally allowed to. His lies on Iraq and other issues were left unchallenged and he repeatedly managed to include attacks against HRC and Prez O in his non-answers.

For those who are interested, here's the WaPo transcript: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/09/07/the-first-hillary-clinton-vs-donald-trump-showdown-of-2016-annotated/#comments

And yes, I agree 100% that the corporate media are MUCH more interested in $$$$ (and ratings) than in actually practicing journalism.
