Report from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
The moderators of Tuesday’s Republican presidential debate in Milwaukee are hoping to deliver something serious but not dull, tough but not snarky, compelling but not stagy.
“I’m not interested in a fight. I’m interested in a conversation about moving the needle on growth, about moving the needle on jobs,” says Maria Bartiromo, Fox Business Network anchor.
“This will be the fourth debate and we still don’t have a clear idea how these guys plan to deal with the most important issue on voters’ minds — and that is jobs,” she says.
After a firestorm over the last GOP debate on CNBC on Oct. 28, the rival Fox financial network hopes to put its own stamp on the debate season.
The network has run ads jabbing CNBC for not asking “the real questions” and is promising to deliver Tuesday “the real debate on our economy.”
Fox Business anchor Neil Cavuto says “there were lot of very fine questions in (the CNBC) debate” but that viewers didn’t feel like they got the meaty economic discussion they expected.
“It quickly morphed into something that maybe was not intended. That happens,” he says. “It’s about getting back to what made debates really good, the candidates mixing it up on issues they’re very passionate about, and with questions that don’t goad them but get to the core of what they’re all about.”
Cavuto, Bartiromo and Wall Street Journal editor-in-chief Gerard Baker are the panelists for Tuesday’s 8 p.m. (Milwaukee time) debate, sponsored by Fox Business Network and Baker’s newspaper.
This debate will be streamed free at FoxBusiness.com, no cable or satellite subscription needed. Furthermore, Fox Business Network is making itself available in most “basic” lineups as a free preview for tonight’s event so you may be able to watch it on your television even if you don’t normally get FBN.
