The explosions in Boston left a nation in shock. How should you talk to your child about the attack?
It is quite a sign of the times that moderators should be fact checking the candidates. In the past, it has usually been the case that when a candidate makes a claim and it is completely proven false, that they stop making that claim. But Trump has broken that model in that he continues to make false claims that have been thoroughly debunked and proven false, as if continuing to repeat it will somehow make it true. So yes, unfortunately, we are at that point where someone needs to call it out during the debate so that people walk away with at least a resemblance of the truth. Fact checking the candidates "after" the debate does not do much because many people do not bother coming back to find out the truth, and so the damage has been done to the political system.
