Looks like Biden and Trump are finally putting the power back in their own hands for the debates, stepping away from the outdated Commission's grip – it's about time for some real change.


CNN [UPDATE: and ABC] will host presidential debate with Biden, Trump, but some questions about its criteria

I blogged some questions about the future of the Commission of Presidential Debates. And my instincts were right. We learned today that the Biden and Trump campaigns have privately back-channeled with one another about an alternative debate format.


If debates become more tailored by the candidates, could this limit or enhance the public's understanding of the issues?


Do you believe holding a debate without an audience changes the authenticity or impact of the candidates' messages?


How do you feel about presidential debates moving away from traditional institutions to more controlled, potentially partisan platforms?
