The moderators of Friday night’s Democratic Party debate in New Hampshire were slammed for ignoring Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

The debate was moderated by George Stephanopoulos, David Muir and Linsey Davis of ABC News. Additional questions were asked by Adam Sexton and Monica Hernandez of WMUR-TV.

Politico reporter Alex Thompson posted a graph showing candidate speaking time 85 minutes into the debate. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) had spoken for almost thirteen minutes, former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg spoke for over twelve minutes and former Vice President Joe Biden speaking for over 11 minutes.

Here’s some of what people were saying by how the ABC News moderators chose to focus the debate:
