: Tonight’s presidential debate (I saw the last half) just proves Jay Rosen’s points. The candidates don’t answer a damned question; they stick tape carts in their mouths and hit “play.” And afterward, on MSNBC, Chris Matthews goes on about who “won.” What he should be doing is saying, “You guys didn’t say jack! You wouldn’t answer the questions. You didn’t advance the debate. You didn’t advance the conversation. You wasted our damned time.” That’s the unspun zone.
