Worked for Joe Biden, Senator Edward Kennedy…and slammed Fox News.
Yeah, no bias there 🙁

The second presidential debate, scheduled for October 15, will be moderated by Steve Scully, the political editor at C-SPAN and host of Washington Journal, who once worked as an intern for Senator Joe Biden in college, later working as a staff assistant in Sen. Edward M. Kennedy’s communication office.
In an interview with Journalism Jobs in May 2011, when he was asked, “Has the quality of broadcast journalism decreased over the past five years?”, Scully took the opportunity to rip Fox News, stating, “I think what has gone downhill is when cable networks get caught in all the titillating news of the day when they should be focusing more on the things that are important to people, like following the money and the state of the nation….
And here he is, arguing with a C-Span caller, insisting that the Chinese, er, COVID-19 Virus was *definitely not* man-made:
If media was fair, they would ask Biden if he thought it proper for Scully to moderate debate. Instead if they do anything re this, they’ll ask Trump if he has a problem and then ask Biden what he thinks of Trump’s answer. If you call them out, they’ll say, What, we questioned both candidates.
Semi-related; Some media ask Trump to request ‘bad’ orgs, Alpha Males or some such, to not vote for him. My response would be; Why do you want them to vote for Biden? Ie, media question assumption is that they’d vote for Trump or no one. No. If you make the effort to vote, you’ll pick one or the other. Very few vote for 3rd Party or write-in.
