Kristin is the "Rules Analyst" for 2019-20 Presidential Debate Season


The 2019-20 Presidential Debate season is a hot mess.  Most pundits are going to discuss what each candidate said. I’ll take a fresh and different angle: How did the moderators impact the discussion? Smackdown or Run Wild?

I am the leading authority on moderating panel discussions.  I literally wrote the book on it.  Much like a football rules analyst, I comment on how objective, skilled and fair the debate moderators were immediately after each debate.

I’ll provide real-time data to back up my assertions:

  • Do the moderators follow their own ground rules?
  • Are the questions posed objectively?
  • Is the airtime equally distributed – or did one candidate have an unfair advantage?
  • Do the moderators intervene appropriately?

I’ll also have real-time polling of the “man on the street.”  In conjunction with Futuri Media (engagement manager to iHeartRadio), we’ll be polling the national radio audience with two questions:

  • Do the debate moderators do a good job?
  • Are the debate moderators fair and objective?

It’s a unique angle that hasn’t been reported…unless the debate goes off the rails.  Which it will.  The debates will be skewed, biased and crowded. And I’ll be there (live or Zoom) to report on all the salacious details for you.

Here are some examples of reporting done for the 2016 Presidential debates:
