Excellent segment of Now on Presidential Debates having become an essential (Jameson) charade (Farah)

NOW with Bill Moyers. Politics & Economy. Election 2004. The Debates | PBS:


Presidential debates can change the course of elections, but George Farah, executive director of Open Debates, has evidence showing that the debates' rules of order have been hijacked by the two main political parties. The result? Moderators can't ask follow-up questions, important issues are never raised, and credible third-party candidates are excluded from the proceedings altogether.

We're going to miss Bill when he's gone.

In the interest of full disclosure, I scored 60% on the quiz.

Don't it always go to show, you don't miss your League of Women Voters Presidential Debate Sponsorship until it's gone.
