Politico, DNC at odds over Democratic debate moderator

The Democratic National Committee and the news organization Politico are locked in an argument over the ideological credentials of a proposed moderator for next month’s Democratic debate, sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.
Politico and PBS are scheduled to co-host the sixth Democratic primary debate on Dec. 19 in Los Angeles.
At the behest of its publisher, Robert Allbritton, Politico is pushing for Tim Alberta, the chief political correspondent for Politico Magazine, to join journalists from PBS Newshour at the moderators’ desk. The top PBS journalists under consideration are Judy Woodruff, Yamiche Alcindor and Amna Nawaz.
Politico’s decision to push for Alberta has rankled officials at the DNC, as well as some journalists at PBS and even Politico, the sources said. The reason: Alberta previously wrote for National Review, a conservative magazine, and has spent the bulk of his recent career chronicling the Republican Party.
Oh I’m sure they will be impartial. :sarcasm:

I’d love to see the guys from Grayzone do a debate. Imagine what an actual debate would be like with Aaron Max and Ben.

We haven’t had real debates in this nation for decades.
When the going gets tough, the tough help each other.
