LETTER: Some suggestions for television debates

Why not take the camera off the person who isn’t answering the question or rebuttal?

Suggested change to format for presidential, vice-presidential and other debates:

The moderator asks the first candidate for a two-minute response to a question.

During that period, the microphone of the other candidate and their picture is turned off.

When given 30 seconds for a challenge response, the microphone and picture of the initial candidate is turned off.

The same procedure applies when the second candidate is asked the same question.
