I can't take it anymore. Can you?</p> <p>For the past three cycles &#8212; 2008, 2012, and 2016 &#8212; I've chronicled the depressing, systemic bias of left-leaning partisans whom the Commission on Presidential Debates routinely installs as "moderators." It would be one thing if these activists posing as journalists were upfront about their political preferences. But they continue to star in phony debate theater wearing their dime-store costumes of objectivity.</p> <p>The even bigger farce? Masochistic Republican Party bosses let them get away with it year after year after year.<p>Updated: Wed Oct 19, 2016</p> 596e5e37fa96ec5c4ecc662d168692e2 Obama Lied.
