Len: Hey, you know who's against fact-checking? People who are afraid of facts. You know who's against being called out on their lies? People who lie as a tactic. Fact-checking at debates is normal, and it used to be the standard when the League of Women Voters used to sponsor the debates, up until 1980, when both parties colluded to form their own bipartisan 'debate commission' to make up the phony baloney rules we're now stuck with. So please, spare me the B.S. line that it's up to the debaters to fact-check one another. Imagine a basketball game without a referee, or a baseball game without an umpire: "Pitcher says he picked him off -- batter says nope. So, I guess the game is over since we'll never know who's telling the truth"
