High Marks For John Dickerson

November 15, 2015

I praised John Dickerson last night for his moderating capability during the Democratic debate, and the words of praise keep on coming this morning.

The ferret-like journalistic questioning of CBS’s John Dickerson, the moderator of Saturday night’s debate and host of “Face the Nation,” represented something of an honorable mean between the contentiousness of the CNBC anchors at last month’s unruly Republican debate and the cautiousness of Fox Business anchors at this month’s GOP encounter.  

Dickerson’s performance also won plaudits on social media, especially for his calm demeanor.

“Boy, John Dickerson is really winning this debate,” John Podhoretz, the editor of Commentary, tweeted.

“So far Dickerson has had a fair-minded but bracing question for each candidate so far,” NPR’s Ron Elving tweeted.

Concluded Peter Suderman, a senior editor at Reason, “I hope John Dickerson moderates a general election debate.”
