Trump and Biden City Halls: Two Channels, Two Candidates, Two Planets | American News


America is often described as a “split-screen nation,” bitterly divided between two political tribes living in echo chambers. But Thursday evening at 8 p.m. was a bit too much on the nose.The NBC network hosted a town hall event with Donald Trump. ABC hosted a concurrent town hall event with its Democratic challenger, Joe Biden. CBS, meanwhile, hosted the Big Brother reality show starring Julie Chen Moonves.

However, for some, the two men speaking at the same time on two different channels was at least preferable to them speaking at the same time in the first notoriously resentful presidential debate.
