<p>Just after the undercard Republican presidential debate began on Tuesday night, the &ldquo;big three&rdquo; networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC offered previews of the impending <strong>&ldquo;freewheeling and fiery slugfest&rdquo; </strong>debate and contrasted that with plenty of laudatory rhetoric for <strong>&ldquo;grown up&rdquo; </strong>Hillary Clinton as she spoke in Minnesota about ISIS and <strong>&ldquo;slamm[ed] Republicans for fearmongering.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>ABC&rsquo;s <em>World News Tonight</em> featured a friendly piece that began with anchor (and Saturday&rsquo;s Democratic debate co-moderator) David Muir applauding Clinton for <strong>&ldquo;laying out her own plan to beat ISIS&rdquo;</strong> with socialist opponent Bernie Sanders offering<strong> &ldquo;tough talk on ISIS as well.&rdquo;</strong></p>
