More on the Mondale/Coleman debate:

More on the Mondale/Coleman debate: United Press International obviously can’t declare a winner. However, it strives to create the impression that Mondale won by giving him the first word (quoting him in the article’s title “You’re not listening’), the last word (another quote from Mondale), and the final word in nearly every exchange reported. UPI’s account makes no mention of any of the issues on which York thinks Mondale had difficulty. However, it does report that callers to the radio station said prior to the debate that “they know who Mondale was, but they don’t know who he is today and they find that lack of information troubling.” I suspect that those who listened to the debate will conclude that Mondale today is simply a much older version of who he was 30 years ago.
