Open Debates 2016Submitted by Zak Carter on Fri, 01/17/2014 - 20:35
In light of statements such as “The Commission on Presidential Debates perpetuates a fraud on the American voter”, Free and Equal Elections Foundation hosted the 2012 “3rd Party” Presidential debates that were moderated by Larry King and Thom Hartmann and viewed by an estimated 20 million people. A number of us who worked with Free & Equal then (I was their communications director) have even bigger plans moving forward. We believe that with laying the groundwork down now, we can create debates that are viewed by far more than 20 million people and really help restore honest presidential debates in America.
Our 4 point plan to restore open and honest debates in 2016 and let alternative voices and ideas be heard can be found at http://opendebates2016.com/
The media project I'm working with now - http://benswann.com/ - is with an eye on creating relationships with people in other organizations and media outlets that will potentially help with the 2016 plan. (I'm Ben's pr director)
We are currently looking for organizations, companies, and media outlets would be interested in joining a coalition to help make these debates as big a success as possible, and if you know anyone who might consider joining with - http://ivn.us/ - http://www.saveamericafoundation.com - http://www.watchingamerica.com/News/ - http://www.endpartisanship.com/ - some of the coalition already aboard, feel very free to pass this along. I think we can really shake things up!
