Why is it Presidential debates have to be on every channel? I feel like a child being punished.


Seriously, do they have to be on every channel? Do they think that we are not smart enough to turn to the right one, tape it, or watch it online afterwards? It's as if I'm a child being punished who can't watch their favorite show because I need to pay attention to the debate. Yes there are other "pay channels" that don't run it but how much to they pay to cover it on every major network?

    I remember those days so well - ABC, NBC, CBS, and if you were lucky PBS too. We've come a long way!

    Ok point taken as to they only come every 4 years, but as you stated the lying and polar opposite stands opposed to their campaign tours are ridiculous. Although I have a huge interest and passion for this election I will be glad when it is over

    Love your answer, so much "common and logical sense" 6-8 weeks just think of the money everyone would save and could possibly use for the hungry or education. The definition of insanity doing the same thing over n over expecting different results

    It has nothing to do with choosing the next president I've done more research this election than probably all the others combined, but why every channel Do they think that we can't find the right one or will watch them because the other isn't on
