You know the easiest way to resolve this debate nonsense is for the MSM to step up....The local Public TV station has all the facilities and people. The commercial stations could help too....Put a 90 minute debate on and make the tape available via Time Warner and the Internet as well.
Everyone who is interested could see it...Those who don't care can go camping in Wanakena.
Television stations operate on public airwaves...When I was in the biz the buzz words were the "public interest, convenience and necessity."
I remember the live radio and TV debates as a youngster on local TV and radio.
If Public TV had put a fraction of the effort into public affairs that they have put in to fishing over the years, they might better have earned the moniker "public". As for the commercial stations...they are looking at who is in the best position to spend on advertising in the fall.
