Degrading Democracy, CNN-Style

“Everyone’s talking about last month’s CNN debate. We can’t unsee President Biden’s performance.
But something else did go unseen: candidates independent of the two dominant parties — specifically, RFK, Jr. ‘CNN RULES WOULD HAVE BARRED EVERY INDEPENDENT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE FOR LAST 112 YEARS,’ read this month’s Ballot Access News (BAN) cover story. Wow. That’s a long time. Self-deputized to supposedly defend ‘democracy,’ CNN sponsored the recent presidential debate using criteria pointedly designed to shut out independent voices — even those polling double digits.” (07/10/24)
