  1. The lie that won’t die, because they keep repeating it.

    “Debate Transcript Shows Trump Did Not “Refuse to Denounce” White Supremacists, Contrary to Media Narrative

    Chris Wallace asked Trump if he was willing to condemn white supremacy. Trump said “sure.” Twice, as Wallace and Biden talked over him.”

    “The left and media claim President Donald Trump refused to denounce white supremacy.

    The debate transcript tells a different story.”

  2. Most seem to agree that Wallace sucked as a moderator.

    https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/09/the_debate_trump_was_great_chris_wallace_was_a_dreadful_disgrace.html

    “Chris Wallace’s overt defense of Joe Biden throughout the debate on Tuesday night was so obvious, so blatant, he should be proscribed from ever “moderating” a debate again.

    Wallace’s performance was as Biden’s protector, his advocate, and that is undeniable. He stepped in at every moment Biden seemed lost: court-packing, lack of support of law enforcement, and Hunter’s criminality.

    The debate was so poorly managed. The questions were designed to aid Biden, to coddle him. No wonder Trump felt duty-bound to interrupt. Trump was debating both Wallace and Biden, and only one of them is sentient.

    Wallace’s intent was clear: sabotage Trump. Wallace succeeded only in looking like the stooge he is.

    Why a two-minute rule? That hardly gives either man time to rebut what was just said about him. Wallace even brought up the Charlottesville charge but did not admit that it was a manufactured lie without giving Trump the time to deny the lie.

    Wallace completely ignored and tried to derail Trump’s bringing up Hunter Biden’s criminal corruption. Why was that not a viable subject for discussion? Biden lied when he said Hunter had been cleared. Not so. Biden has a long history of lying and financial corruption. Should that fact not be up for review for a candidate for president? If Biden were a Republican, you can bet it would.

    Wallace should be fired for his wholesale lack of objectivity. He’s become a cut-rate Dan Rather.

    Trump made important points, all of which Wallace tried to mitigate: voter fraud is real and is being perpetrated by Democrats throughout the country.

    Biden tried to insist that the violence being visited upon Democrat-run cities across the nation was by white supremacist groups, a total lie that Wallace let stand.

    Biden is looking forward to shutting down the economy for COVID and implementing a mask mandate.

    Biden is not supported by law enforcement anywhere in the country for obvious reasons, and Obamacare was and remains a disaster.

    Wallace, a member in good standing of the mainstream media, is a handmaiden of the Democrat party in which winning by any means necessary is the rule. Wallace’s bias for Biden was appalling.

    Climate change! Who on Earth at this moment in time thinks this is an important topic for discussion? No one but the moonbat Greta Thunbergs of the climatistas. No one. Biden’s Green New Deal would put millions of Americans who work in the fuel industry out of work. The left’s embrace of this nonsense has left California with rolling blackouts. Wallace did not question Biden’s lack of understanding of the impact his green new deal would have on the economy. Wallace was for Biden, not America.”

  3. The truth is inconvenient.

    https://www.outkick.com/chris-wallace-american-media-fiddle-during-debate-as-blm-antifa-burn-our-country/

    “Last night’s presidential debate exposed the American media as Nero, the Roman emperor who according to legend played the fiddle as fires reduced 70 percent of his country to rubble.

    The mainstream media desperately try to frame President Trump (or any sitting president the media deems unworthy of office) as Nero, when in reality the Fourth Estate rules the priorities of the American public. The media are the Supreme Court of public opinion. Our power is protected by the First Amendment, and our importance to a well-run constitutional republic was articulated by Founding Father Thomas Jefferson.

    “Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government,” Jefferson said, “I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.”

    The death of newspapers is killing America. Our country is rudderless without a healthy and deliberate newspaper industry serving as our watchdog. Reflective and nuanced journalism, the hallmark of traditional newspapers, has been replaced by instantaneous analysis and clickbait, the tent poles of social media.

    FOX News host Chris Wallace is the focus of an avalanche of criticism today after his pot-stirring, one-sided performance as debate moderator. Wallace was bad, but I don’t blame him. He dutifully adhered to the dictates of the new Fourth Estate, Twitter.

    Anyone unwilling to comply with Twitter standards isn’t a candidate to play the role of presidential debate moderator. “

    “Kyle Rittenhouse’s Lawyer Will Sue Biden for Libel Over False Accusations in New Ad

    “In the latter role, I am getting ready to teach @JoeBiden a lesson he will never forget. He falsely accused a 17-year old boy & prejudiced Kyle’s legal rights.””

    “Lin Wood, the attorney for Kyle Rittenhouse, demanded Joe Biden’s campaign retract an ad that has a false accusation against his client.

    Then Wood announced that he will sue Biden and the campaign on behalf of his client for libel.

    Rittenhouse traveled from his home in Antioch, IL, to Kenosha, WI, in August to help protect businesses from looters and mobs.

    He allegedly shot three men. Two of those men died and the third suffered serious injuries.

    Rittenhouse faces five charges: reckless homicide, recklessly endangering safety, intentional homicide, attempted homicide, and recklessly endangering safety.

    The attorneys claim Rittenhouse acted in self-defense. Fuzzy wrote on August 28 that The New York Times’ reconstruction of that night makes a case for the defense strategy.

    Biden’s Twitter account posted a new ad after Monday’s night debate to attack President Donald Trump’s supposed “refusal” to condemn white supremacists.

    Biden wrote, “There’s no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night.”

    I refuted that claim earlier today. But I digress.

    The ad includes Rittenhouse.”

  8. This is just stupid.

    The AP Stylebook is worried about offending the offending rioters. Carry much water there, do ya AP?

    https://www.rebelnews.com/ap_stylebook_riots_are_protests_if_theyre_in_the_name_of_black_lives_matter_antifa

    “AP Stylebook: Riots are “protests” if they’re in the name of Black Lives Matter, Antifa”

    “Under the Associated Press’ new set of guidelines, riots should no longer be referred to as such because they focus too much on rioting and ignore the “underlying grievance” that is used to “stigmatize broad swaths of people protesting against lynching, police brutality or for racial justice.”

    In other words, riots are merely “protests” if they occur in the name of Black Lives Matter or if Antifa militants are involved in mass violence.

    In a new advisory put forth by the Associated Press’ AP Stylebook Online, the guidance advises journalists to “[u]se care in deciding which term best applies: A riot is a wild or violent disturbance of the peace involving a group of people. The term riot suggests uncontrolled chaos and pandemonium.”

    The news organization enjoys broad spectrum syndication and aggregation across most local and major news publishers. The AP Stylebook is a standard in North American and international English-language newsrooms.

    “Focusing on rioting and property destruction rather than underlying grievance has been used in the past to stigmatize broad swaths of people protesting against lynching, police brutality or for racial justice, going back to the urban uprisings of the 1960s,” the AP Stylebook stated on Twitter.”

    Even though his wife reported a definitive denunciation less than 24 hours prior”

    “The list of people completely broken by Trump just gained an addition — Fox News’s John Roberts.

    Despite the fact that Trump denounced white supremacy during the first presidential debate (and the media ran with the narrative that he refused to do so), John Roberts asked if Trump would denounce white supremacy during Thursday’s White House press briefing.

    Chris Wallace: Trump ‘bears primary responsibility’ for debate chaos
    ___________________

    … “My initial reaction was, ‘This is great’ because so often these debates become parallel news conferences where one candidate answers the question to him, the other candidate answers the question to him,” Wallace recalled. “So when the president started engaging with Biden, I thought we were gonna have a real debate here.”

    However, Wallace went on, “it became clear, and clearer over time that this was something different and that the president was determined to try to butt in or throw Joe Biden off … I saw another Fox analysis that indicates the president interrupted either Biden’s answers or my questions a total of 145 times, which is way more than one a minute. And he bears the primary responsibility for what happened on Tuesday night.” …

    … “At a certain point, 45 minutes in, I called a halt to the debate for a moment and said ‘You know, this isn’t really serving America and please stop the interruptions,'” Wallace told Hemmer. “And the president said, ‘Well, why don’t you admonish him? And I said, ‘Because you’re doing a lot more of the interrupting, Mr. President.’ Biden was doing some, no question about it, but less than half as many times as the president.” …

    Chris Wallace Strains to Control Debate as Trump Flouts Rules

    _____________________

    Fox News anchor Chris Wallace was stuck between two clashing forces as moderator of Tuesday night’s presidential debate: straightforward rules and a participant who seemed determined to ignore them.

    Mr. Wallace received mixed reviews for his performance. He struggled to rein in President Trump, who frequently went over his allotted time and interrupted his rival for the presidency, Democratic Party nominee Joe Biden.

    The candidates, Mr. Trump in particular, often veered off from the six broad themes Mr. Wallace had selected in advance: the Supreme Court, the coronavirus, race and violence in cities, the economy, each candidate’s political record and the integrity of the election.

    At one point, Mr. Wallace told Mr. Trump that he could respond to a coming question however he liked—on topic or not—provided he did so without interrupting Mr. Biden. He added that the country would be better served by a cogent debate, telling Mr. Trump that he was doing most of the interrupting. …
