ABC News: Debates You Cannot Count On for Election Coverage

Short post because Tom Shales at WaPO wrote most of how I felt about the ABC News Debate last night. I don't know if camera work or questions were slanted to help Clinton, but Charlie and George should have known better than to spend the first hour on gossip.

Aldon Hynes wrote an estute complaint to ABC News:

I hope you are truly ashamed for having produced the worst Presidential debate on television. Some of us want to hear the possible next leaders of the free world talk about real issues.

What you did was a grave disservice to our country.

Like Aldon, I also complained at ABC News' website here.

Our media needs serious reform. And news journalism is should not be entertainment.
