The debates: We will learn little to nothing that could not be discovered by any Google user”

Instead of any substantive exploration of the candidates’ proposals, we will be treated to a mélange of showmanship and complaining, obstinacy and irrelevance, petty quibbles, grandstanding, pandering, half-truths, and punchlines. The candidates will be rehearsed, the moderators timid, the questions calculated, and the answers at once too short and too long. We will learn little to nothing that could not be discovered at this very moment by any Google user of modest skill.

I would love to see an Oxford-style presidential debate. And the idea to replace the audience with in-ear laugh tracks is brilliant.
