I often reference “Opposite World” on my show. This morning, I got proof that it exists and is eating away our fourth estate.
This morning I happened to have MSNBC on. Ayman Mohyeldin was anchoring, with former presidential debate moderator Carole Simpson and former primary debate panelist (and radio hate talker) Hugh Hewitt on. One of his questions was whether or not the debate moderator should also fact check the candidates answers.
Simpson said absolutely they should. Hewitt thought not so much. His rationale made me spit coffee. I had to go back and pull the audio because I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t heard it myself. Take it away Hugh Hewitt.
