Fox is definitely better at doing news-as-entertainment, which obviously never lets facts get in the way of audience arousal...but for those who saw the questions as pretty hard hitting and "going after the candidates" I would suggest that the questions were mostly hard hitting when it came to any variation from the rightwing wing of the party...there were few if any hard-hitting questions about the lies each candidate was telling on stage in real time and none about their campaign's finances or criminal activities (e.g. Rand Paul's recently indicted campaign managers etc.)...unfortunately the Democratic debates are moderated as if they were a top university's debate forum where logic and reason and factual information are prized whereas last night's Fox "debate" was moderated as if it were a Super Bowl with a halftime show, i.e. disappointingly lopsided with glitches...
