Please be reminded that these tv shows aren't debates, they haven't been debates for many years, and the corporation that is sponsoring the shows has ceased referring to them as debates - because they're not. The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), a Democratic and Republcan bipartisan-sponsored (prick up your ears when you hear the wird bipartisan!) private corporation, took control of the debates from the League of Women Voters in 1996 and raised the barriers to participation the next election cycle, excluding all but Democrat and Republican candidates from the debates. To real folks' disgrace, real debates have now been replaced by (in the CPD's own words) "nationally televised joint appearances between nominees of the two major political parties." Of this, there can be no debate.
