During Sunday's edition of MediaBuzz, host Howard Kurtz and the panel discussed the biased performance of Jorge Ramos, who was one of the moderators at the most recent Democratic debate. After playing some clips of Ramos putting his left-wing bias on display for all to see, Kurtz asked "how is Jorge Ramos able to sit on that ABC panel and crusade and is that kind of an embarrassment to the network?" Ben Domenech of The Federalist compared Ramos's performance to the "most embarrassing debate moderation" of the 2016 presidential campaign by John Harwood of CNBC. According to Domenech, "Jorge Ramos, I think, on the scale of 10 being Harwood, he was at like a solid 8." Domenech also argued that "you can't put someone who has that strong of an advocacy role on a debate panel and expect it to go well." Kurtz pointed out the double standard by members of the media: "I don't see virtually anyone in the mainstream media saying, you know, Jorge went too far, he's over the top, he's biased, he's supposed to be neutral...Remember, Fox can't host a DNC debate because it's so biased." Kurtz stressed that "Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum and Chris Wallace would be a lot more solid journalists than an opinionated person like Jorge Ramos."
