John Deeth Blog: Judge Orders Kucinich Into Debate
Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog
A judge in Nevada has just ordered MSNBC to include Rep. Dennis
Kucinich in Tuesday's Democratic Party presidential debate in Las
Vegas or he will cancel the forum. I'm going to risk the wrath here.
First of all, MSNBC should have invited him and shouldn't have then
canceled on him. But even though it's buried in the language of
"breach of contract" law, does anyone else see a First Amendment
problem here? A judge has just ordered a news organization to report
the news a certain way. That's really scary, and is a greater harm
than excluding a marginal candidate from a debate.
