Fox News Debates

Has anyone else seen any of the Fox Republican Debate from last night? I caught the tail end (with Guiliani refusing to stop talking),?and then watched the focus group afterwards.

Was it just me, or was it incredibly fake? I’ve never seen such solidarity for one candidate (Thompson) and against another (Paul). The responses were canned.

I’ve really been fascinated to watch how much control media has over the election. They can easily just say “This person is not electable,” and it suddenly becomes true. This is happening on both the Republican and Democrat sides.

Won’t this just cause us to get more of the same, as the front runners are decided before it ever gets to the polls?

I do, however, really appreciate the roles the fringe candidates are playing in pushing a variety of views more into the mainstream.
