The debates:

    President Trump’s re-election campaign is formally asking that a fourth debate between the president and Democratic challenger Joe Biden be added and that the showdown be held early next month, before many states start sending out absentee ballots to voters. In a letter sent Wednesday to the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), the Trump campaign urged that if a fourth showdown can’t be added, then the date of the first debate – scheduled for Sept. 29 – be moved up to the first week of September. TRUMP CAMPAIGN REFOCUSES FIREPOWER ON EARLY VOTING, WITH JUST WEEKS TO GO UNTIL START The Trump campaign also suggested a list of proposed moderators from which the commission could choose. The list of...
    Fox News media analyst Howard Kurtz warned that President Donald Trump’s campaign may be “setting the bar so low” for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s debate performance that it could backfire. “I think the debates will happen, but there is a growing movement in left-wing media circles that Biden should just skip them because they say either it’s too risky, President Trump won’t play fair, or — and this is a perennial complaint — they’re basically just too superficial and scripted,” Kurz said Wednesday on “America’s Newsroom” before calling it “sheer hypocrisy.” WATCH: “Now many of these people, their heads would have exploded if Donald Trump had blown off the debates in 2016, and it would be a...

    There’s a debate raging right now about the presidential debates: Will they happen this time around? Without further ado: The debates will happen. They always have. They will this time, too. But that’s never the point in the silly city that is Washington, D.C. What’s important is the kabuki theater that underlies every issue. It’s not the doing, it’s the talking. And talking. And talking. Facts don’t matter, everything becomes a debate about the debate. So now there’s literally a debate about the debates. CNN’s media pundit and “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter on Monday blamed conservative news outlets for pushing the notion that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden won’t debate. “It is mostly a right-wing media tempest, fueled by...
    Bradley Cortright August 4, 2020 0 Comments As rumors swirl that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will try to avoid debating President Donald Trump, his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, says he plans to attend the debates. During an appearance on Fox News on Tuesday, Jill Biden was asked by host Dana Perino if her husband plans on debating Trump. She responded, “Oh yes, he will. I think it’s three debates that they decided on.” “So, yeah, he’ll be there,” she added. In June, the Biden campaign committed to three presidential debates, as IJR reported.  Perino noted that former White House spokesman Joe Lockhart, who served under former President Bill Clinton and supports Joe Biden, penned an op-ed urging him to skip...
    Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, confirmed Tuesday that her husband will show up to all three scheduled presidential debates. In an appearance on Fox News’ “The Daily Briefing” with Dana Perino, Biden’s wife was immediately asked if her husband would show up and take on President Donald Trump at the three scheduled presidential debates following speculation they could be canceled. “Oh yes,” Biden said. “He will. I think it’s three debates that they decided on. Yeah. He’ll be there.” WATCH In June, Biden’s campaign committed to three debates with Trump before the election in November.  Trump’s campaign requested four live debates against Biden, the New York Times reported. The four debates would be one more debate...
    As the 2020 election steadily approaches, there have been growing calls from the media for Joe Biden not to debate President Trump or the debates to be scrapped altogether. There appears to have been an evolution from some members of the media regarding the debates. Back in June, an op-ed in The Washington Post declared "it's time to rethink the presidential debates." Columnist Karen Tumulty laid out suggestions to improve the political matchups like getting rid of a live audience and conducting them in a television studio. As she noted, the elimination of a crowd would make it more challenging for Trump to "pull stunts," citing his invitation of four Bill Clinton accusers during his town hall debate with Hillary Clinton. However, New York...
    Monday on MSNBC, Biden campaign senior adviser Karine Jean-Pierre argued that the Trump campaign was “trying to move the goal post” by calling for more presidential debates. Anchor Ayman Mohyeldin said, “Let me get your final thoughts on something the Trump 2020 campaign has been saying. And if they want more debates, Bill Stepien saying they want more debates starting soon, pointed out the first debate is scheduled for September 29. By that time, 16 states will have already been voting. What is your thought about that? Do you want to see more debates, or does the Biden campaign want to see more debates?” Jean-Pierre said, “Well, the Biden campaign has been very clear, crystal clear on this, is that...
    The village idiot has spoken. Former Bill Clinton spokesman and sputtering wackadoodle Joe Lockhart, frantically suggests that under no circumstances should Joe Biden debate Donald Trump. You're thinking that must be a gag. No. According to Lockhart, Trump tells so many lies it's pointless for Biden to "enter the ring with someone who can't follow the rules or the truth." BIDEN SKIPPING DEBATES WOULD 'ONLY REINFORCE QUESTIONS ABOUT IF HE’S TOO WEAK' TO LEAD, ARI FLEISCHER SAYS But we know what he's really saying, right? The moment Biden faces off with Trump, and the cognition starts malfunctioning, he's dust. Which is really why, Lockhart admits, "Biden can lose the election." He's just creating a phony reason, hoping no one notices. We did.More from...
    Donald Trump Jr. mocked the left on Monday after The New York Times ran an op-ed calling for the presidential debates to be scrapped before President Trump has a chance to square off with presumed Democratic candidate Joe Biden. “OMG they’re really going for it. There’s absolutely nothing the left will not do to protect Joe Biden and cover-up for all of his obvious flaws,” Trump Jr. tweeted to accompany a link to the op-ed. SANDMANN ATTORNEY CALLS CNN’S BRIAN STELTER A ‘LIAR,’ CHALLENGES HIM TO SUE FOR DEFAMATION Washingon-based author and political journalist Elizabeth Drew penned the piece headlined, “Let’s Scrap the Presidential Debates,” which claimed the events have become unrevealing quip contests. She wants to “scrap them altogether” and not because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic....
    The New York Times published an op-ed Monday morning titled “Let’s Scrap the Presidential Debates,” arguing that they play too great a role in helping voters choose the president. Journalist Elizabeth Drew assures readers that she is not worried that Biden will lose the debates. “This, by the way, isn’t written out of any concern that Donald Trump will prevail over Joe Biden in the debates; Mr. Biden has done just fine in a long string of such contests,” she writes. The point, she says, is that the debates are meaningless — “that ‘winning’ a debate, however assessed, should be irrelevant, as are the debates themselves.” She argues: Nervous managers of the scheduled 2020 presidential debates are shuffling the logistics and...
    (ANDREW CABALLERO-REYNOLDS, Getty Images) President Donald Trump‘s former political advisor Roger Stone is concerned that his longtime friend won’t be able to defeat former vice president Joe Biden come November. “Everything depends on this November,” said Stone, according to the Washington Times. “We are outgunned and outmanned, but I have great confidence in the president’s skills as a communicator and as a campaigner.” On Nov. 15, a federal jury found Stone guilty on five counts of making false statements to Congress, one count of obstruction of a congressional investigation, and one count of witness tampering. Trump last month commuted Stone’s 3-year jail sentence after federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson denied Stone’s request to delay the start of his prison sentence...

    The world is still talking about Sushant Singh Rajput’s death by suicide. The actor passed away on June 14 and the enquiry into his death is ongoing. Home Minister Amit Shah has taken note of Rhea Chakraborty’s letter asking for a CBI probe into her boyfriend’s death. Also, social media is scattered with filth – conspiracy theories, abuses towards people think are responsible and utter hypocrisy from the industry.

    The mayors of several major cities in the United States are planning or demanding a reorganization to stem the tide of new Covid-19 cases, but political disagreements between the different jurisdictions prevent a unified and coherent response. While reconfigurations have been ordered in recent days in Melbourne in Australia, Lérida in Spain, Manila in the Philippines or Tangier in Morocco, such decisions remain extremely rare in the most affected country on the planet, where a revival has taken place since June. Officials in the metropolitan area of ​​the largest city in Texas, Houston, which has approximately as many inhabitants as in Melbourne (4.7 million inhabitants), called for a new containment after the detection of 1,600 new cases in 24...
    Democratic political commentator James Carville flipped the script on growing Republican claims that Joe Biden is too scared to attend the three 2020 presidential debates this fall, and instead predicted: “I don’t think Trump will show up.” Carville’s trademark outspoken remarks came during a discussion of the election with The 11th Hour anchor Brian Williams. The MSNBC host began the conversation on the debates by pointing out the latest New York Times column by Tom Friedman. which laid out two demands the Biden campaign should make before agreeing to any presidential debates with Trump. Friedman’s column comes amid efforts by Republicans to paint Biden as too afraid to participate in the debates. During a Fox News town hall in late June, for example, President Donald Trump baselessly...
    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump falsely claimed again on Thursday that his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, is using the coronavirus pandemic to try to get out of debating him."Now, he's already saying that he can't do debates because of Covid. Do you believe it? 'I can't do the debates because of Covid.' That was -- I just heard a little inkling of it two days ago. I said, 'Watch this one,'" Trump said during a Fox News town hall event in Wisconsin with host Sean Hannity. Facts First: Trump's claim is entirely baseless. Biden has officially committed to participating in the three scheduled presidential debates -- and Biden has repeatedly said he is eager to debate Trump even...
    The Last of Us Part 2 punctuates one the longest, strangest debates in video games: the 13-year discussion of ludonarrative dissonance. The term references the disconnect between what players do in a video game (ludo is Latin for play) and the story that the game tells (narrative). People were discussing this idea under different terms long before the phrase exploded in 2007, in part due to an oft-cited blog post by game designer Clint Hocking that made use of the term. After that, big-budget video games collectively calcified around its central dilemma. This was the year BioShock and Uncharted debuted. Critics cited games like these as evidence that the medium was “growing up,” while also acknowledging that ludonarrative dissonance was...
    European countries have their liberals and progressives as well as their right-wing conservatives and libertarians, and one thing all of them can agree on — for all their differences and heated debates — is that wearing face masks in public is a very good idea during the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed over 483,600 people worldwide (according to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore). But mask wearing, much to the dismay of physicians, has been seriously politicized in the United States. Javier E. David, in an article published by Yahoo Finance on June 25, describes the assertions of U.S.-based physicians who realize that wearing a face mask should be viewed from a health standpoint rather than a political standpoint. “Social distancing...

    The following is satirical. Negotiations have begun over the format for the 2020 presidential debates. The Trump campaign is suggesting four debates, to be carried out with a choice between broadswords and spiked maces with whoever first has his head crushed or completely severed declared the loser and whoever ends up roaring in blood-drenched victory at the scarlet sky securing the right to paint his half-naked body with the guts of his enemy and rename himself Kratos, God of War. The Biden campaign, conversely, is requesting a single debate, lasting seventeen minutes or until the beginning of naptime, whichever comes first. The venue will be the window of Biden’s cellar where his face will appear in a mask and sunglasses...

    Joe Biden is planning to participate in three previously-scheduled debates with President Trump — and not one more, his campaign said Monday. The Biden campaign is also calling on the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates to explain how it plans to hold the in-person debates scheduled for September and October, despite the coronavirus pandemic. "There is no reason why Vice President Biden and President Trump cannot meet for debates with appropriate safety and social distancing measures (set by public health authorities) on the three dates the CPD has identified. Nothing should prevent the conduct of debates between Joe Biden and Donald Trump on these dates; again, we do not want to provide President Trump with any excuses for not debating,"...

Fox News later confirmed that Giuliani – who served as one of the President Trump’s lawyers during his impeachment – joined campaign manager Brad Parscale on a call Thursday with members of the Commission on Presidential Debates, which organizes and holds the contests. Parscale argued that because of the expected increase in voting by mail — which Trump alleges is ripe for corruption — there...

The four debates would be one more debate than nominees of both parties typically have before the general election.

    The Republican-controlled Minnesota Senate on Tuesday debated a package of police accountability measures drawn up following the death of George Floyd, but with a more extensive set of bills advancing in the Democrat-dominated House critics warned the Senate proposals don’t go far enough.
