ABC and the Debate Spectacle

April 17th, 2008 by Rick

What was that spectacle ABC put on last night?

It wasn’t really a debate between Democratic Candidates, as much as it was a littany of “gotcha” moments between moderators and Candidates.

Any real substantive issue was not covered until well into the 1st hour of the program.  Instead, the moderators seemed hell bent on examining every gaffe, mis-statement, controversy thus far in the campaign season.

This is not a Republican or a Democratic issue.  This is a media issue.  It was a bad night for American Journalism, and this is definitely not the kind of debate I want to see in the General Election.

Maybe I’m just old-fashioned, but I for one, am interested in the issues of the day, and how they impact our Country.

Or maybe I’ve just found myself in some weird parallel universe.
