After Jim Lehrer's widely panned presidential debate performance last week, many Twitter users raved about ABC News' Martha Raddatz as moderator, calling her tough, sensible and calm. Poynter.org deemed Raddatz the "debate winner." Raddatz questioned both candidates on foreign policy, the Benghazi attacks, the economy and abortion.

The journalist's peers generally agreed. Brian Williams praised Raddatz for "moving that conversation along," while Fox News Channel's Bret Baier said, She interrupted much more and asked many more pointed questions."

Many conservatives, however, felt that Raddatz appeared biased toward Vice President Biden, allowing him to steamroll Rep. Paul Ryan.
