A Letter to the Editor of the Las Vegas Sun on Tonight’s Debates (sent 16 January)
I will not be voting for Dennis Kucinich, but how outraged the people of Nevada should be
1. That their Supreme Court thinks a corporation is entitled to freedom of speech under the Constitution.
2. That MSNBC, owned by GE, a military contractor, has censored Kucinich from the debates.
3. That, as a result, the only opinions being put forth in the debate are essentially “it’s inevitable that we remain in Iraq.”
4. That this method of censorship went forth without the 3 candidates boycotting the debate.
I am a regular visitor, now in Las Vegas, from Blue Island, IL.
P.S. The decision from the Sup Ct was handed down in a less than timely manner, right before the debates, allowing for no further recourse on Kucinich's part. Bastards.
