  • Trump’s lying again: Leaked DNC emails show Clinton didn’t fix the debates

    The Daily Beast - 07/31/2016

    The Trump campaign’s charges are “absolutely baseless,” said Alan Schroeder, a professor at Northeastern University who wrote Presidential Debates: Fifty Years of High-Risk TV. “There is no rigging, and nothing different about this year’s schedule from previous cycles.”

    Given that there are 256 NFL games from early September to December, experts said it would be near impossible to have a debate that wasn’t on a weekend or holiday and did not coincide with a game. Plus, it’s happened before.

    The last debate of the last debate of the 2012 presidential election occurred Oct. 22, the same night as a Detroit Lions game against the Chicago Bears. It still pulled in 59.2 million viewers.
