There’s No Debate About This: We’ll Get Complaints If We Say The Candidates Are Behind Podiums
The five candidates on stage tonight in Las Vegas will be standing at lecterns, not podiums, as many emailers have reminded us already.
From Webster’s New World College Dictionary:
“lectern … a stand for holding the notes, written speech, etc., as of a lecturer.”
“podium … a low platform, esp. for the conductor of an orchestra; dais.”
