here's a pull from our just-dropped debate, where @bungarsargon made a spirited argument that THE NEW YORK TIMES HAS LOST ITS WAY. Which side made the better case? That's up to you. The vote is open till Friday. Watch, think, vote. Here: https://t.co/rZ1uUyJ7tL https://t.co/GEolLoCOee

Election watching by an open fire, in our nation's capital. Strangely our "watch party" , with much social distancing, is somberly silent as we watch the returns come in. Perhaps it's more boisterous where you are!

As lots of you know, I moderate the @IQ2US debates (REALLY GOOD DEBATES). Only one time did things really get out of control. Unruly debater-wise. Here's what I did. Hands worked. It was a gamble.

The moderator role requires re-definition. To be more than a host, timekeeper, question-asker. The role requires a referee, granted power to call fouls, penalize. Cut mics. Dock time from the rulebreaker. That's not taking sides. That's running the show. #PresidentialDebate

Okay, last night we saw a fiasco, not a debate. But debate as a concept CAN work, and play out civilly, and even shed light. Proof? Tonight at 6 EST, we're doing it yet again on a tough topic, Policing. It's free and YOU get to vote. I hope you'll join us. https://t.co/y6qigiQXq7

Just 75 years ago someone who looked like me didn’t have a credential into a White House built by slaves. The first black female White House reporter pawned her watch every week to eat. Grateful the next time I walk through the gates it will be as a White House corespondent ❤️

Anyone can lash out and tear down. Building something that lasts and is truly beneficial is far, far harder. Often people lash out from anger and frustration but doing so often just ensures that person's continued isolation as people find them repellent. Build something real.
