Liz Carter is being allowed to participate in tonight’s 4th CD debate. A Newsmakers representative spent a few minutes shortly beforehand again making excuses for the situation which had developed. Whatever.
You can watch the debate live, starting at 7 p.m., here.
Oh, and Hank Johnson didn’t even show up. Maynard Eaton again this evening maintained he’s never heard of Liz Carter…must not be a very good journalist, then.
[UPDATE] It’s 7:22 p.m. and this farce of a “debate” is now over. It’s pretty clear after this display that Maynard Eaton truly isn’t a good journalist. His five questions were different versions of “You really think you can win, you horrible Republican?” followed by calling Carter “combative,” “hard,” and clearly intimating that he didn’t like her. He didn’t even bother to have any notes in front of him.
Publisher Jim Welcome then stood up and made sure to get his final dig in, by describing Liz Carter as “Sarah Palin-ish in her approach to politics.” Whatever that means, your guess is as good as mine.
This must be what passes for fair and balanced journalism, Newsmakers Journal style.
