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?
sort by best latest
I remember those days so well - ABC, NBC, CBS, and if you were lucky PBS too. We've come a long way!
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
Definitely a wow factor answer and agreed as I stated in another comment the true definition of insanity
the biggest problem is that people like it the way it is. Some die trying to get here. kind of like the least of evils. Hey that is just like the debates ;-)
People now a days move to and from almost every country.... not realizing happiness is found inside themselves no matter where they are....still others die inside .. look to the inner cities on every continent and you will see cadavers still walking
There is no choice and no tranquility while the body starves. But the point of the question posed is far more practical. Every station is an exaggeration. But blocking of choice is a reality, as is the situation for most.
informed citizenship is extremely important...as well as laughs in life..please keep that in perspective also peanut...
We have a citizenship more informed by the People Magazine than the New York Times.
This is exactly why politics and comics should not mix...uhhh where did that BIG bird come from lol...so you see politics didnt turn off the comics after all...lol
LOL -- "Informed" or brain washed to think it's a big deal. When has an election really made any difference? The same powers still manipulate politicians no matter who wins. We need laughter more than watching adults argue and deliver false promises
An informed citizenship is determined by the citizen doing his/her research on the candidates they're interested in not all about debates (or shouldn't be anyway). It should be on what they've done and a detailed look at perspectives not tv acting.
I can see both sides, but shoving debates down peoples throats isn't the way to engage them and get them interested in politics. Heavy handed tactics never convince anyone - they drive people away, but youre right we need a more informed populace.
Ah Ha I knew it would come out sooner or later $$$$$$$ Thanks and even though I figured as much, it's nice to hear someone else's opinions One billion WOW
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
It should be on every channel. That way, people actually have to pay attention for a little while, or not watch TV, and they aren't going to forego TV.
