So you admit that the moderators were biased.Do you believe a challenger down in the poles gets a choice of moderators? She was lucky she got a debate.Journalism is in a sad state if she even had to worry about it.

If this were more biased, they would have just muzzled O'Donnell and had James Carvill speak for her on how she 'really feels'
I think it might be that you are accustomed to Fox News, wherein every major potential Republican candidate for president in 2012, excepting Romney, is on the payroll; i.e. Fox is paying the people they are alleging to cover, granting them immunity from any actual coverage that isn't pure GOP propaganda.Sometimes, people who are actual journalists ask candidates questions and expect to receive answers which contain, perhaps, 1-2% of substance rather than 100% empty language and tautologies.I can see how that would be hard for you.

Ha ha, once again your bias shrouds you from reality.Fox News during the democratic nominations was shown to be the most fair when reporting about Hillary Clinton. Much more fair than all the liberal 'news' organizations.Of course facts are no reason for you to change what you no to be true.Fox News: They Report, You Deride.Even the NY times had to admit it

If it was a real concern, she should have brought it up.Personally, I think she just has said a lot of stupid crap and that has consequences.And to both you and SamHARD, most of her answers were empty. I have never heard O'Donnell once say anything of substacne, just rhetoric and platitudes. You both see insane bias, I see light bias surrounding a serious attempt to get her to say ANYTHING of substance.

This was clearly, CLEARLY because they wanted to run against her and not Obama.Good one, though.

I know, he leaves out that it was advantageous for them to do this. Fox News would throw Jon Stewart a parade if they felt it would help the GOP in an election.

Dude,Every politician is empty, all their speeches are pre-conceived sentences designed to fool the right people the right way.O'Donnell should not be made to blame for doing what they all do.Nor should she have the moderators decidedly in her opponents favor.If they were equally hard on Coons, then this accusation of favoritism would be clearly shown to be false. They weren't, which is why you are not trying to argue that. you instead are trying to blame O'Donnell for letting those two moderators be liberal hacks.

There's just not as much to be equally hard on Coons as there is on O'Donnell. You pick weirdo candidates, you get what you get. If the GOP had video of Coons saying off the wall things, they'd run it and ask for comments about it. It's not a smear campaign if they are showing video of things you said.

Speaking of this, I heard that they are getting worried about the turnout so Huffpost is spending $250,000 to bus in people from New York.This is only $250,000 more than the Tea Party spent to bus people in to inflate their numbers.This could be a BUSt...which would make me happy and will ruin John Stewart for all you guys who can't get over the fact that he isn't really news.

So it wouldn't be a smear campaign to show Coons article he wrote that he was mostly influenced in politics by a self avowed Marxist professor?

Unlike the Tea Party old people, Jon Stewart fans have stuff to do. I would be shocked if he got as many people as Beck did.He is not news; he is just the closest thing we have to an unbiased and incisive news commentator.If his rally is a bust, it won't change my opinion of him one iota.
