In fairness, I know nothing about "debate surrogates" one way or another, so maybe this is a nothing story. Is this a thing? Or is this something new that Brandon is doing? What does a surrogate do?

Be interesting to see if they did replace him with Newsom what lengths the media will go to in providing cover as to the reasons

SWMBO has decreed that the debate will be recorded from two channels, CNN & Fox.  She has shown leniency in allowing me to be in another room when she watches the recordings.

I believe I have heard of this from prior debates. I think it is "a thing," as the kids say.

On the tangent, apparently CNN made some bold statement about nobody on the internets had better break DMCA and livestream any CNN debate  content, and Elon replied with an Elon reply.  =)

Pretty good example of "poke the bear", since Elon can just unplug CNN from X anytime he wants, and CNN can't do anything to him.

On the one hand, CNN is struggling, so that would easily explain why they want to protect their content. On the other hand, it may mean they don't want that many people actually watching Brandon's performance.

I hadn’t, but it appears to largely be people chosen to defend their candidate’s performance and positions in media, so yes, a thing.

Never heard of this as a term for Presidential debates.  Are they saying Newsom will walk out on stage instead of Biden? 

If so, Trump should just leave.  Newsom is nothing unless than the Dems are saying he is the nominee.

SO MANY people are saying that the CNN moderators are going to be biased I wonder if maybe - just maybe - they'll actually take a stab at being impartial?

If they do - and that's a big IF - I figure it will only last until it dawns on them that Trump is getting the better of Biden. Then they'll drop all pretense of being fair and become rabid attack dogs doing  everything they can to goad Trump into losing his composure.

When they ask Trump about his criminal charges, Trump will certainly say something along the lines of it being Democrat lawfare. That would be an opportunity to ask the moderator "You know, I say it's all political, you certainly will disagree. Let's meet in the middle - you ask me about whatever charges you want that were brought by someone - ANYone - other than a Democrat or Democrat appointee, and I'll do my best to answer. Deal?"
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

CNN says that while they won't be able to fact check in realtime, it would be unfair to put the onus on Biden to call out Trump's lies, so they will need to assist him with that to keep things fair.

Rumble was very slow to come up.  Hard to retry a bunch of times.  Finally got Stephen Crowder's stream going on Rumble.  He started at 7:30 PM Central.

Two minutes in and I'm done. "Trump told people to inject bleach in their arms". No fact checkers to be seen.

2 minutes in, Joe talked about being from Scranton.  Check off one.

That dude is wired - both on drugs and something in his ear. He's being remotely corrected, like millions... I mean billions". He normally never corrects himself when he does that stuff, the press secretary does.

Who's assigned to the fire alarm?
Sooner or later, law output will become greater than Court input.
