  Second presidential debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump canceled Both campaigns have agreed to appear at the third and final presidential debate, a podium format set for Nashville on Oct. 22, the source said.The bipartisan commission, under intense criticism from the Trump campaign, announced the decision in a statement late Friday, saying the campaigns of both Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden "each now has announced alternate plans" for Oct. 15, the date of the debate.

Washington ( CNN ) House Democrats are pushing ahead with a far-reaching Covid-19 recovery package Top White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett and other Trump administration officials asserted on Sunday that they do not believe a fourth economic stimulus package is needed right now.

( CNN ) Democratic leaders in the House and Senate wrote to FBI Director Chris Wray requesting a "defensive counterintelligence briefing" for all members about Russia's efforts to interfere in the 2020 presidential election, according to a copy of the letter released Monday.

Just another day of people in establishment media amplifying a contrived left-wing talking point.

Weird that this type of thing keeps happening.

On Sunday, Democratic operatives pulled a Katie Couric, selectively editing an interview of a Republican Senate candidate to make him appear unprepared, ignorant, and easily flummoxed.

Elena Kuhn of the Michigan Democrats was among the first to share the altered video, which purports to show Republican Michigan Senate candidate John James awkwardly dodging a question about how he plans to protect Michiganders with preexisting conditions. In real life, however, James gave a lengthy response to the question.

Opinion: Donald Trump's troubling vital signs

  Opinion: Donald Trump's troubling vital signs This week, President Donald Trump's doctor provided fragmentary information on his patient's condition and illness. Trump's bout with coronavirus came in the last month of a campaign focused on questions about his fitness to lead and his administration's response to the pandemic.Today, caregivers in hospitals measure such vital signs every few hours. President Donald Trump's doctor, Sean Conley, provided fragmentary information on his patient's vital signsthis week as he briefed reporters in front of the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. But he was far from transparent about the full nature and course of Trump's Covid-19 illness.

But for some in the press, “context” is apparently a foreign concept.

“Revealing,” said CNN White House correspondent John Harwood as he shared the edited 47-second clip with his more than 411,000 social media followers. Just a quick reminder: The Republican Party let Harwood moderate a GOP primary debate in 2016.

“Wow,” Politico magazine contributing editor Adam Wren added elsewhere.

Said Fortune magazine editor John Buysse, “This is absolutely brutal.”

The edited video begins with James’s interviewer asking him about his plan to protect those of his would-be constituents with preexisting conditions. The Republican candidate responds, saying: “So, here’s the thing: I’m not a politician.”

Democrats form counter disinformation unit ahead of election. On Thursday, NYT reported (and CNN confirmed) that House lawmakers were warned by an intel official that Russia was taking steps to interfere in the 2020 election and get Trump re-elected.

The video ends there.

But James said much more than what the clip shows, as anyone with internet access can see for himself.

“I’m coming to this as somebody who has real-world experience,” says the Republican Senate candidate. “This is the two-year anniversary … of when I stood up on the debate stage with [Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan] and told her to her face that she was lying about me, I said, ‘Senator, you’re fibbing again.’”

He adds, “I will always vote to protect people with preexisting conditions. We must have a market-based, patient-centered approach that will do that. And Democrats have ignored that because it gets in the way of their narrative. I believe that creating a system where … we make the Affordable Care Act actually affordable.”

Fact check: Joe Biden called 'forces of intolerance,' not Trump supporters, the 'dregs of society'

  Fact check: Joe Biden called 'forces of intolerance,' not Trump supporters, the 'dregs of society' Accounts linked to President Donald Trump and his family claim that Joe Biden called Trump supporters the "dregs of society." In reality, he said that about "forces of intolerance."A campaign account, Trump War Room, claimed on Twitter that the remark was in reference to "Trump supporters.

( CNN ) The second night of the 2020 Democratic National Convention is over. The oddness of the all-virtual gathering was slightly less jarring than on the opening night (or maybe I was just more used to it). Old hands like Bill Clinton were mixed with young stars like New York Rep.

James also said, “Deductibles are such that people are rationing their care and putting themselves at higher risk, driving insurance costs up, and I would support having a legislative requirement — a legislative requirement — that protected people with preexisting conditions.”

Pushed to clarify his position on whether the Affordable Care Act ought to be repealed, James said, “I’m saying emphatically that we must not repeal coverage and protections for our seniors and people with preexisting conditions.”

He adds:

But they will continue to lie about my position on it because this is something that’s very personal to me. I have people in my family with preexisting conditions. I will always protect them. I have people who I employ who have preexisting conditions and I’m paying 85% of their healthcare premiums through our business to make sure they can continue to maintain this healthcare even through a pandemic.


I believe that people need to have choices and they need to make their own choices and not the federal government and insurance companies.

None of these remarks, by the way, are included in the video circulated by Democratic staffers certain members of the press.

One can argue about the merits of James’s overall response, but it is a straight falsehood to claim he was caught flat-footed by the question had nothing to say except to assert that he is not a politician. As it turns out, James had quite a lot to say on the topic.

There is no excuse for why people like Harwood would share the altered video. They know the clip is incomplete. They can see it originates with Democratic staffers. They know the video gives an incomplete picture of James’s response. They know there is missing context.

They just don’t care.
