The moderator of a political debate (for the New York Senate, no less) asks a question based on an internet hoax. Given the fact that journalists are just entertainers, and show no aptitude for the facts, why do journalists moderate debates and ask the questions? If debates are important to a democracy, shouldn't people who know what they're doing be involved? What sort of punishment should be meted out for such an egregious error?
