Where Were the Fact Checkers?

The first two Democratic “debates” were both flawed and MSNBC and NBC did a poor job managing them. But the amazing thing about the two-night show was the complete lack of fact checking by the “moderators.”  It went without challenge that the economy is worse today than under Obama, for example.
