A CNN operative won’t be moderating one of the three planned presidential debates, and network deplatforming activist Oliver Darcy isn’t happy about it.
The censorship activist voiced his displeasure that a personality from the network won’t be moderating a debate when speaking on a Thursday segment with host Brianna Keillar. He took particular offense that Fox News’ Chris Wallace will be moderating a debate, who is himself a reliable liberal.
“So, when Chris Wallace is awarded the first debate by the commission on presidential debates — which is this nonpartisan group that selects the debates and operates them — when he’s awarded this, it’s really a slap in the face to some extent to the other news organizations, the other journalists who haven’t bent the knee for this White House, and who have endured venomous attacks because of their insistence on telling the truth no matter how costly it is,” said Darcy.
Yes, Chris Wallace is a great anchor. But his network has pushed disinfo, conspiracy theories & outright lies in support of the President. And by giving Fox the first debate, the Commission on Presidential Debates is rewarding one of most destructive forces in American politics. pic.twitter.com/xOrEaGmllr

Darcy oversees efforts to institute censorship over alternative media organizations and journalists, among them Alex Jones of Infowars and Jack Posobiec of One America News. He succeeded in lobbying Big Tech platforms to ban Jones and other right-of-center individuals, erasing any doubt that the nominal journalist is anything but that.
A partisan liberal operative from CNN- a bona fide fake news organization which wholly devoted itself to discredited Russia conspiracy theories after the 2016 election- has no place moderating a presidential debate, which should be left to more credible media figures.
Fox’s Chris Wallace will moderate the first debate, on September 29th. C-SPAN’s Steve Scully will moderate the second on October 15th, and Kristen Welker of NBC will moderate the final contest on October 22nd.
As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen
Right on cue.
With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.
For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”
This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.
Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”
On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”
“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.
And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.
