How I Would Run the Debates
Any candidate who starts attacking gets their mic turned off by the moderator. There will be a big red button on the table next to the moderator – maybe Staples will sponsor? – and when that button is pushed, the sound feed is killed to the house and the TV truck. All the attendees and viewers will see is a politician moving their lips with no intelligible sound coming out. The cynic in me wonders if anyone will notice the difference.
