Biden Floats On-Screen Fact Checks During Debates

Forbes reports:

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday said he has begun preparing for the upcoming debates between him and President Donald Trump, specifically by brushing up on Trump’s “multiple lies,” and proposed a “crawler” on TV screens to fact check.

Biden was asked during an event on reopening schools in Wilmington, Delaware, if anything could dissuade him from participating in the debates after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested last week that he withdraw to avoid “legitimizing a conversation” with Trump.

“I’m looking forward to the debates,” Biden said, adding that what would make it a “great, great debate” is if everything both candidates said was “instantly fact-checked by an agreed-to group of people” using a “crawler” on TV screens. Biden conceded the idea “probably wouldn’t get very far.”
