Steve Scully: Liberal Hack

Can Joe Biden's Former Intern be an Unbiased Debate Moderator?

Posted on Oct 9, 2020

The radical left, fake news media has completely infiltrated the Presidential Debate Commission. If the bias weren’t glaring enough at the first Presidential debate and the Vice Presidential debate, hold on to your hat.

Last night, Steve Scully, political editor of C-SPAN and host of Washington Journal, who was selected to moderate the second Presidential debate tweeted (in a since-deleted tweet) at disgraced former Trump Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci “@Scaramucci should I respond to trump”.

It is highly concerning that Scully, who is supposed to be an impartial debate moderator, is tweeting to Scaramucci who is known for vocally disavowing President Trump and his administration. So much for fair and impartial.

The “independent” debate council has stepped in and remarked that Scully was “hacked”, but Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) co-chair Frank Fahrenkopf said that he was told debate moderator Steve Scully’s Twitter account was hacked but adds he has no direct knowledge.

This creates a massive issue of credibility for Scully and for the debate commission. In the past, Twitter has checked and verified whether or not notable accounts have been hacked. If Twitter wants to be a beacon of impartiality and help ensure free and fair elections through the content shared on their platform, they must verify Scully’s logins. If he was indeed hacked, that could be a serious attempt of foreign election intervention. But if he refuses, it certainly looks a lot like he and the debate commission lied to the American people.

Additionally, Scully’s background calls into question his ability to remain neutral on the issues. Scully interned for Democratic nominee Joe Biden and in 2016 he wrote a piece for the New York Times entitled, “No, Not Trump, Not Ever”.

The American people must know the truth, many of them are already calling for Scully to resign from his position as debate moderator. Regardless, after the last two debates, this episode does not bode well for the supposedly neutral commission. Twitter must investigate whether or not Scully was actually hacked. This issue brings to light the necessity for a re-examination of the commission’s impartiality.
