The TV network's presidential forums continued the next day, Sept. 20, 2012, with the same hosts questioning President Barack Obama.

The hosts made a special point of drawing attention to the fact that the formal "Presidential Debate Commission" declined to have any Hispanic journalists as moderators or panelists for the upcoming trio of presidential debates.
