Yet again we are subjected to politics as presented by those who would direct how we are to vote.
A presidential debate should not be dictated by a performance of political performance stars who have at most 10 minutes to pontificate on inane and cute zinger questions that a large percentage of the US population can’t even see. The full panoply of US voters will be restrained from engaging as long as political debates are conducted under conditions that prohibit their engagement. The culprits are: “Pay for TV” and the lack of universal broadband for everyone.
The Washington Post is providing a running transcript of the Republican Debate of the “Ten”: HERE.
Like Fox News’ presentation of the “Party of Me, Me, no, ME!” tonight, CNN will dictate who is to watch the upcoming Democratic Debate. Who even owns the actual transcripts? The TV channels?
It seems a long time ago now that the League of Women Voters was tasked to present these debates.
