Lester Holt “became [Clinton’s] Real-Time Fact-Checker”, says AIM Chairman

Our chairman Don Irvine was asked to comment [1] on last night’s presidential debate between Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and NBC News anchor Lester Holt by LifeZette:

“I was somewhat optimistic before the debate that Lester Holt would be a fair and balanced moderator, but instead he appeared to have listened to the Clinton camp’s complaints that she would be treated harsher than Trump as he spent more time questioning Trump’s claims than Clinton’s during the evening,” said Don Irvine, chairman of Accuracy in Media. “He became her real-time fact checker and gets a generous grade of C from me for his performance.  In my opinion, he also did a poor job of keeping the candidates on topic and on time.”
