My email to CNNSubmitted by AtticusFynch on Thu, 01/31/2008 - 19:14
Your behavior during the debate last night was shameful and reprehensible. You directed the overwhelming majority of your questions to McCain and Romney, and for the very few questions you directed to Dr. Paul and Gov. Huckabee, you interrupted them repeatedly, and while letting McCain and Romney drone on and on and on. Over and over again you promised to give more questions and time for Paul and Huckabee when cutting them off, then failed to do so. This is the sort of behavior I would expect from FOX. I had hoped for better from CNN.
I am sick and tired of the media manipulating elections by giving billions of dollars worth of free advertising in the form of news coverage to those candidates they feel ought to be the front-runners, while blacking out the rest.
Last night was a disgusting display, and the last straw. I have been a loyal viewer literally since the very first day your network launched, but no longer. I will be canceling my cable subscription asap. Good riddance.
