Fox Business GOP Debate Recap

The Fox Business Network’s Republican Debate is now in the books. Now that a few days have passed, it is time for a post-mortem of the debate, the moderators, and (ultimately) the candidates themselves.  Just how well did the whole event pan out? First, the structure of the debate and the questions asked were a step above those from the CNBC debate two weeks prior.

CNBC marked the debate at 14 million viewers, calling it it’s most watched night in the network’s history. This record is lower than the first two GOP debates, which both averaged over 20 million viewers. The first...

Democratic Debate: Sanders and Clinton Stole the Show

After the intensive Democratic primary debate and TheCollegeConservative’s live-tweeted coverage, the debate went off without a hitch. Hillary Clinton, former of Secretary of State under President Obama, and Bernie Sanders, the self-righteous socialist U.S. Senator from Vermont, commanded the stage through out the night. The Issues covered in CNN’s broadcast included criminal justice reform, civil rights, and foreign policy. Notably, however, Clinton and Sanders both held adamant stances on college affordability. Sanders wasted many breathes on a proposed ‘speculation tax’ that will be levied on Wall Street and the rich. The revenue from that would, allegedly, fund tuition-free education for...
