I’ll Be Liveblogging the Debate Tonight

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


I know what many of you are thinking. “Is Kevin going to liveblog the debate tonight? If he doesn’t, will I actually have to watch this dumpster fire?”

No worries. I’m a dedicated professional, and that means I’ll watch the debate so you don’t have to. And unlike certain other professionals I could name, I’ll try to fact check in real time. This is actually harder than you’d think, and Donald Trump’s firehose of lies wrapped in ignorance inside a fog of gibberish doesn’t make it any easier. But I’ll try.

The debate starts at 9 pm Eastern. I’ll start up a few minutes before then.

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
