ABC’s George Stephanopoulos to Maggie Haberman on Sunday’s This Week:
“The [New York] Times got attention last week when they called out a Trump lie on the front page of Saturday’s paper. You’ve got another article in the paper doing that this week. Whose job is it, and is the Hillary Clinton team right when they complain about this double standard, they say ‘well voters think she’s dishonest in part because the media hasn’t done its job calling out the dishonesty of Donald Trump’?”
With the first presidential debate right around the corner CNN’s Brian Stelter amped up his call for debate moderators to be fact-checkers, during Sunday’s Reliable Sources. Of course, most of his concern is focused on Donald Trump with Hillary Clinton being an afterthought, seeing as he lambasted NBC’s Matt Lauer for not doing it.
The Sunday before the first presidential debate of 2016 was filled with analysis and speculation about how the candidates were going to perform. It was the same on CNN’s Inside Politics were their panel touted Hillary Clinton’s ability to debate. Host John King played a clip of Clinton leaving Senator Bernie Sanders speechless after slamming his questions about her speaking fees as a smear, saying it was a clue about how Monday’s debate might turn out.
