Presidential debates

Two interesting stories today – TV networks say that they don’t intend to comply with the utterly absurd requirements of the presidential debate agreement.


eMediaWire – a debate including those other candidates. We’re not *just* a two-party system, you know.

Regarding the first article … the agreement says that if any moderator is unwilling to sign the agreement, they can be replaced. I sincerely hope that they are unable to find any potential moderators who are willing to sign the agreement. That kind of solidarity and integrity would be a wonderfully refreshing thing.

But, doubtless, they’ll find sufficiently many folks sans backbone. Pity, that.
