Town Hall Highlight Reels
October 16, 2020

NBC decided to schedule a town hall with President Trump at exactly the same times as a previously scheduled ABC town hall with Democratic nominee Joe Biden on the night they were supposed to have held their second presidential debate. The network got a lot of flak for that decision, and afterward NBC News cut together the two events to make a virtual 5-minute debate of sorts between the two candidates.

The Washington Post also picked its own highlights from both town halls.

Biden did stick around for at least half an hour after the debate and continued answering questions from the audience. ABC News showed Biden's afterparty while its contributors related their own highlights of the event. And CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale quickly ran through some of the night's biggest whoppers.
