The Commission on Presidential Debates selects moderators several weeks before the debates. The commission cites three criteria: familiarity with the candidates and the major issues of the presidential campaign; extensive experience in live television broadcast news; and an understanding that the debate “should focus maximum time and attention on the candidates and their views.”
The moderators choose the questions to be asked.
