Yay, illegal election maneuvering

Dear ___,

I am extremely concerned to learn that NBC has decided to exclude presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich from next week’s televised debate.

By choosing certain candidates and excluding others from a televised debate, NBC is illegally taking sides in an election and severely limiting the public’s ability to learn more about the presidential candidates. NBC and all of the other networks have an obligation to provide unbiased information to the American people. Excluding candidates from the televised debate stands in direct contrast to the responsibilities of the network as laid out by the Federal Communications Commission.

It is especially heinous that NBC has opted to exclude Dennis Kucinich from its debate, in light of the fact that he clearly met the criteria chosen by the network itself and made public on December 28.

Please reconsider this decision and re-invite Dennis Kucinich to next week’s debate. I expect NBC to be wiser than other networks. I also expect the FCC to lay penalties against networks that do not follow the law.

    Around the time of the New Hampshire Primary, FOX excluded Republican candidate Ron Paul from a debate. I’m disagree with the man on several points, but I still think it was a raw deal. A colonial politician whose name now escapes me once said: “I do not like the things you say sir, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” How far we have come.

    And that’s what I get for not proof-reading.
