Barbara Walters, Carole Simpson Debate the Debates


By Chris Ariens Comment

With the first presidential debate less than two weeks away, the Paley Center for Media in New York is hosting an event with two former debate moderators, and a man who produced eight presidential debates.

Next Thursday, Barbara Walters and Carole Simpson will discuss the risks and rewards for candidates, as well as issues the networks and moderators face before this year’s debates. Walters moderated debates in 1976 and 1984 while Simpson moderated a 1992 presidential debate. Bill Wheatley, a former NBC News Executive Producer who oversaw the production of eight of the televised debates, will be a part of the conversation as well.
