The third presidential debate preview

TSS News Room

We are just over 24 hours away from the third and final presidential debate between the Republican nominee Donald Trump and the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. The third debate will take place at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas (UNLV) on Oct. 19th at 9pm E.T. The debate is being moderated by Chris Wallace of Fox News.

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, explains the format for the third debate,

The format for the debate will be identical to the first presidential debate.

The debate will be divided into six-time segments of approximately 15 minutes each on major topics to be selected by the moderator and announced at least one week before the debate.

The moderator will open each segment with a question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. Candidates will then have an opportunity to respond to each other. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a deeper discussion of the topic.

Lucky for us, Chris Wallace has released the topics that will be discussed. The six discussion topics will be immigration, entitlements and debt, the Supreme Court, the economy, foreign policy, and each candidate’s fitness to serve as president.

All of the major cable news networks – Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, and C-Span will be airing the debate and will also be doing pre and post-debate spin and interviews with the campaign’s surrogates. Also, the debate will be accessible through social media like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. Lastly, most of the networks will also be streaming the event on their websites.
