Action Alert: Contact NBC and CNN to Call for Inclusive Debates,FAIR
George W. Bush recently offered to debate Al Gore three times-on an NBC 'Meet the Press' primetime special (Sept. 12 in D.C.), on CNN's 'Larry King Live' (Oct. 3 in L.A.), and at an Anheuser-Busch/Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) -sponsored event (Oct. 17 in St. Louis). Polls show most Americans want candidates such as Ralph Nader included in the upcoming presidential debates, yet Bush's proposal, like that of the bipartisan CPD, would exclude all but the two major parties. A previous FAIR action alert called on citizens to urge the Commission on Presidential Debates to include viable third-party presidential candidates. Now, says the media watchdog group, media activists and pro-democracy advocates need to speak out promptly in the wake of Bush's proposal. -- LU
