Well, the first presidential debate is a done deal, and as always I like to quickly type out my own personal reactions before reading everyone else's, to give you an opinion uninfluenced by the herd mentality of the rest of the media.
Tonight, however, one would expect all that to evaporate, as Trump struggles mightily to get specific and fact-based on a range of policy fronts.
A running theme in discussions of U.S. military strength in recent years is the notion that the United States is not spending enough on the military, and that as a result the current U.S. military is "in shambles," or, even worse, "a disaster." Nothing could be further from the truth.

For a long time, the country has been obsessed with Hillary Clinton's emails. There has been an almost total press blackout, however, on another, far more serious White House email scandal.
Trying for a "perfect" candidate can be a disaster; we may end up with someone diametrically opposed to our values.
Nine years after the Great Recession began during the tax- and regulation-slashing Bush administration, some startlingly good economic news arrived from Washington, D.C., last week.
Donald Trump poses as a working-class populist, but about his new economic plan would be a gusher for the wealthy. And almost nothing will trickle do...
The media got played by Donald Trump this morning, once again. Picture Charlie Brown lying flat on his back, wondering why he keeps falling for the old kick-the-football bit.

No doubt Lauer, like many others in the media, feared being labeled "partial towards liberals," despite the absence of evidence that such a liberal media bias exists.
