Debate This, Pal

Wow. Talk about the mainstream media (MSM) "not getting" social media. ABCNews "partnered" with Facebook to "jointly sponsor" tonight's Democratic and Republican presidential debates in Manchester. And yesterday they announced that Dennis Kucinich will not be invited. Gov. Bill Richardson will be debating along with the Big 3, but if you go to the little ABCNews Facebook application, you'll see Kucinich outpolling Richardson by a wide margin (7% to 3%). Kucinich has filed a complaint with the FCC and supporters are hastily rallying in protest.

Similarly, although Ron Paul will be in tonight's debate, he will not be in the Fox News debate tomorrow night. Paul is the leader in ABC's Facebook poll at 37%. Paul's supporters are protesting, online of course.
