The issue isn’t which gender makes better moderators. The issue is apparently the definition of moderating. Yes, the two female ‘moderators’ presided over more lively debates and steered the candidates into more revealing discussions. But is it still considered moderating to steer a debate and even disobey the rules of the commission which established the debate in the first place? If those are the guidelines for being a good moderator, then perhaps someone should inform all future ‘moderators’ that their job is really to liven things up for the TV, rather than follow and enforce the rules agreed to by the participating candidates.
