I wonder what Keith Olbermann will have to say about this
I don't understand how it serves the purposes of democracy to exclude a legitimate candidate from a public debate. Now MSNBC had "disinvited" Dennis Kucinich from a presidential candidate's debate. What are they afraid of hearing, or having us hear? Somehow, networks ought not be able to do this. Oh for the days of the fairness doctrine.
Of course, MSNBC seems to be taking its cue from the Democratic Party itself, which is keeping Kucinich off the ballot in Texas because he won't sign a party pledge.
Maybe their all afraid his demand for a New Hampshire recount will uncover something untoward.
