MRC’s Brent Bozell Slams NBC’s Lester Holt’s 'Failed' Performance as Debate Moderator

Following the first 2016 presidential debate on Monday night between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell issued the following statement about the debate and moderator/NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt:

Lester Holt clearly heard the cries of his colleagues in the liberal media to be tough on Trump and ease up on Hillary loud and clear. Holt continually challenged, fact-checked, and interrupted Trump and not once challenged Hillary. Holt pounded Trump repeatedly on the birth certificate controversy, his position on Iraq, his tax returns, and whether or not Hillary looked presidential. Where were the questions on the Clinton Foundation or Benghazi or her email server? These are the questions that drive right to the heart of whether Hillary is ready to be president and yet viewers tuning in tonight heard nothing about these important issues. Lester Holt failed in his role as a moderator. Period.
