This seems like a good thing. We all recall how main stream media debate moderators sought to influence the debate outcomes. Candy Crowley's infamous bias injection in a debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney comes to mind as the most notorious example. And there was George Stephanopoulos' question about abortion in another debate which left most observers scratching their heads until it was learned that the Obama admin planned to contrive some contraception issue.
The GOP may not be able to keep the Democrat friendly moderators out of the presidential debates, but putting some restrictions on the primary debates is a good start.
So it's refreshing to see GOP Planning on Tighter Control Over 2016 Primaries: Fewer Debates, Better Moderators.
