Eric Ostermeier provides analysis on talk time for news moderators during GOP debates.
Smart Politics, a non-partisan political news site at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, conducted a study of 17 GOP debates that have taken place since September. Out of the five media outlets that hosted debates, moderators at CNN spoke the least amount of time in comparison to the candidates. The moderators, which included Wolf Blitzer, John King and Anderson Cooper, were heard during 15.9% of the debates.
