Like many another pundit, I praised Martha Raddatz yesterday (HERE) for the job she did Thursday night as moderator of the vice presidential debate in Danville, Ky.
Blogger David Roberts, however, saw it differently. He agrees that Raddatz was better than Jim Lehrer had been as moderator of the Obama-Romney debate a week earlier, but he thinks she was otherwise NOT VERY GOOD:
A moderator’s role as referee is only half the job. The other half is selecting topics and questions, which frame the debate far more than the refereeing. And Raddatz’s choice of topics and questions was awful.
