Fox News media analyst and ‘Media Buzz’ host Howard Kurtz breaks it down on ‘Fox News @ Night’

President Trump has let everyone know how he views NBC News’ Kristen Welker – the moderator scheduled for the upcoming presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee – calling her « terrible and unfair » on Saturday during an attack pre-debate offensive

“She’s always been terrible unfair &, like most of the Fake News reporters, but I’ll keep playing the game People Know! How’s Steve Scully?” Trump tweeted with a retweet from son Donald Trump Jr., linking Welker and his family to prominent Democrats

Welker’s family have donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democrats over the years, and Welker and his family spent Christmas in the White House with the Obamas in 2012

Trump’s Steve Scully comment referred to a C-SPAN reporter who was suspended, allegedly for lying about his Twitter hack before he was ready to moderate an October 15 debate between Trump and Biden in Miami that was ultimately called off

Scully had sent out a tweet that some critics saw as biased against Trump on whether Scully should respond to the President’s criticism of him

Prior to joining C-SPAN, Scully’s jobs were as an intern for Biden and working for the late US Democrat Sen Ted Kennedy

Trump frequently takes issue with interviewers and moderators, including Fox News’ Chris Wallace, who hosted the first debate on Sept. 29 in Cleveland, and NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, Trumps Town Hall moderator who aired at the place of debate canceled in Miami

« Anyone who’s ever dealt with Welker knows she’s an activist, not a journalist, » a senior White House official told The New York Post

Conversely, Jason Miller, senior Trump 2020 adviser, told « The Story » host Martha McCollum last week that he thought Welker would do a « great job »

“I have a very high opinion of Kristen Welker”, he said “I think she will do a great job moderating the third debate. I think she is a journalist who is very fair in her approach and I think she will be a very good choice for this third debate «
