CNN Explination for Blog take down after GOP debate!

I'm sure a lot of you have already seen the CNN page on their blog explaining why they pulled down the "Who won the GOP debate?" posting.  Well it's open for comments!  There are already 826 comments so go add yours!  What I wrote is below.

I was very disappointed in the debate coverage before, during, and after. Not only for Ron Paul but for the other tier 2 candidates. How are American’s supposed to make a informed decision about who to support when debates and news coverage is obviously for the top three candidates? I really do not see how it is the job of the news media to decide who to report on to inform the American people. I thought the media was there to give equal opportunity for all candidates to express their views. I did not see that in the last debate or any of the coverage on your cable network or online. It’s very one sided it’s no wonder people who are polled keep with the top three! It’s because the major media outlets aren’t giving fair attention to all candidates! I’m very disappointed in CNN, FOX, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, local and national news papers and their lack of equal coverage for all candidates. This is the exact reason why so many alternative outlets are springing up and why you are getting such a rise in emails and blogs! How else is the American public suppose to get the information they need to make a good decision to support when the major media outlets don’t do a fair job of covering the race? It’s ridiculous and someone at each outlet needs to go back to school and learn the basics of “fair and balanced.”p.s. at least with the blog now maybe the flood of emails with lessen. - CNN Political Ticker The Ron Paul phenomenon? «
