Debate Number 2

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

Tonight was the second of the presidential debates, and it cannot be escaped. The debates, presidential and vice-presidential can be found on almost every news channel and on some of the major network channels.

This is a place to applaud journalists and network news channels alike. There are many issues in the country that voters should be informed about before they make their decisions at the poll in November, and the fact that news coverage of the debate is almost inescapable will hopefully mean that voters are more informed than ever in light of this important election.

The debates thus far have been covered with little political bias, which is refreshing and should be commended by journalists. It will do more to encourage voter turnout and enthusiasm if journalists continue to cover just the facts and let voters make up their own minds.
