The first presidential debate in the 2020 election was anything but… presidential. It was a bare-knuckle slugfest. An incredible show of impropriety and indecency. Makes one proud to be an American.

Aside from all that we did a little technical analysis, as we oft tend to do. First we published the analysis of what was actually said by the two candidates, and the much-unenvied moderator Chris Wallace, during the debate itself. You can take a look at that here: Presidential Debate Analysis Trump vs Biden

We also took a look at the media coverage before and after the debate. Guess what? Among other things, the coverage after the debate got a lot more negative. That sits well with our own feelings. Whether it does or not, though, we thought we’d share that too: Debate One: Before & After Headlines
