Stats on NBC Debate 1-23-2012

Brian Williams was concerned with creating sparks between candidates, and discussing the election itself rather than the issues that need governing. Perhaps just as clear was the lack of interest in mixing Ron Paul into the conversation. Speaking an overall of 10:08 (mm:ss), Ron Paul received just 10 turns talking, and at one point even waited for the other candidates a combined 14.5 minutes of nominee talking whereas no other candidate even approached 10 minutes in between turns.

where do I go, what do I do...

...to correct this? I don't know.

Is there someone, somewhere with the authority to spank NBC and/or Williams for this? (I don't like using state powers; I prefer to use voluntary market actions, but I could be persuaded to make an exception for this.)

Do I have to organize a national boycott, or some other mass protest activity/event? (These are very difficult and rarely successful.)

Do I have to create -- or find someone to create -- a video showing the problem, and then figure out how to show it to X% of the American people? (National media will be unwilling to help, for the obvious reason; any other method is difficult and time-consuming, and probably expensive too.)

If I knew of a promising avenue for correcting this, I'd take it.

Future generations, take note: it's not for lack of desire or effort that we allow this travesty to continue. We just don't see any good options (yet)!!!

What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

This kind of treatment by the

This kind of treatment by the media is shameful.

Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.

Boy. Ron Paul can sure pack a lot of goodness into 10 minutes.

Imagine if he had as much time as the other idiots to talk uninterrupted.
