Hillary's Performance at National Security Forum Was Atrocious

Weekly Standard

"So why are the media focused on Matt Lauer instead?"

"Wednesday night, NBC hosted a presidential forum on issues related to national security and the military where Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were interviewed and took selected questions from military personnel in attendance. Today host Matt Lauer served as moderator.
"If you read media reports about the forum, the event was a total fiasco. Not because Clinton did poorly—and she did—but because Lauer was totally unfair to her. A good summary of this bizarre take on events can be found on the Washington Post's Thursday morning under the headline: "Matt Lauer's widely-panned performance shows the perils for debate moderators":
. . .  Much more here...
"Both Paul Krugman and Nicholas Kristof were cited by Politico and CNN. Krugman authored a column on Monday before the debate whingeing that the media have been too hard on Clinton. The column was so shameless even commentators on the Left described Krugman's column as part of an "Unrelenting Pundit-Led Effort to Delegitimize All Negative Reporting About Hillary Clinton." Kristof's Twitter feed is similarly filled with defenses of Clinton that are at odds with the facts. And if nearly all of the criticism being cited comes from liberal columnists and Democratic operatives, how can we say Lauer was "widely panned" much less "universally" condemned?
"Why are the media are piling on Lauer here? The answer was right there in the Post's headline about the "the perils for debate moderators." Hillary Clinton's performance Wednesday was abysmal, and it's easier to spin Trump's lesser lies about relatively inconsequential lies like whether he supported the Iraq War as a private citizen. Clinton's allies in the media are suddenly very worried that she's going to bomb in the debates, and the best way to improve her chances is to make the debate moderators afraid to answer tough questions about her many lies."
John Podhoretz: Presidential forum proves no matter who wins, America loses  . . . "Listening to Clinton prevaricate about her emails and Trump prevaricate about positions he holds and doesn’t entirely seem to understand once again raises the unholy horror of the fact that out of 330 million people in the United States, these are the two who have ended up in the race for the White House in 2016."

Vet Confronts Clinton and She Lies Again
"A US Navy veteran confronted Hillary Clinton during the Commander in Chief forum Wednesday over her handling of confidential information."
