I watched the last two debates only and at that I watched them on CSPAN where there is no comment during nor after the debates and I don't have to deal with all the other add-on crap at the bottom or the top or the sides or the diagonal strip (I'm sure it will happen eventually) say. I don't care what Blitzer or even il Maestro Jim Lehrer has to say--although the latter has the courtesy to wait until the end while the former YELLS over everything as if his blathering counts!
