What Happened at the Debate

Missed the Debate? Here's the Ultimate Cheat-Sheet

Everyone around you is talking about the presidential debate last night and the "Xerox comment heard 'round the world," and you're baffled? Never fear! The New York Times Transcript Analyzer feature practically watches the debate for you, explains the finer points over a nice dinner, and might rub your feet if you're lucky. Okay, not really — but it does have an entire rollover transcript, second-by-second, searchable by word.

Search "Xerox" and up pops a little marker on the exact time it was uttered, how many times, and by whom. It was exactly once, by Hillary Clinton at 51:38, but that one mention is clearly the go-to soundbite from the debate today. Liberty and I will be back in a bit with our reactions, but in the meantime, go check it out. Ooh, and there's video too . . .
