Of Course ‘National Review’ Was Disinvited From the Debate
You can either be a partisan or a moderator.
The conservative magazine National Review was to be among several co-sponsors of Monday’s Republican debate. They have been disinvited by the Republican National Committee after a special issue denouncing Donald Trump.
Some on my Twitter feed argue that this shows that the Establishment is now cozying up to Trump. But to have done anything else would have simply added fuel to the Trump fire. As an RNC spokesman put it, “a debate moderator can’t have a predisposition.” Indeed, as Jack Fowler observed on NR’s blog, “We expected this was coming. Small price to pay for speaking the truth about The Donald.”
