Is it a debate moderator’s job to fact-check?
Popular sentiment holds that upwards of 100 million people will watch the first 2016 presidential debate between Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican contender Donald Trump on Monday night.
Coverage of the debate and the run-up to it will continue through the day on sacbee.com, culminating with a live blog to provide real-time assessment, fact-checking and comment during the debate and, immediately following, a live discussion hosted by The Sacramento Bee’s Dan Walters. You are invited to participate in both live events.
