2 candidates. No audience. 29 New York Times fact-checkers.

The New York Times: We’ll have 60 Times reporters. Here’s how we plan to cover the presidential debate.


How do you cover a historic presidential debate that includes a candidate convicted of 34 felonies in what he has called, without evidence, a “rigged trial,” and that will air on TV absent an audience? With a few dozen reporters and fact-checkers.

President Biden and Donald J. Trump will take the stage at CNN’s Atlanta studios Thursday at 9 p.m. Eastern time to debate the economy and inflation, immigration and the border, abortion and contraception, the wars in Ukraine and Gaza, and Jan. 6, 2021, alongside other pressing topics.

The New York Times will livestream the debate, and 60 Times journalists will be on hand Thursday night to offer context, insight, photos, reactions and fact-checking as part of our live coverage beginning around 8 p.m.
