The Republican debate was viewable only to those who pay hundreds of dollars in annual cable subscription fees. There was no word from any of the candidates about this new trend, even though many speak of being for the less fortunate who cannot afford to pay for what should be a public service.
This is true even though the federal government obligates networks to deliver a certain percentage of public-service announcements. I guess because there were no time-outs in the debate makes them look for profit in other ways and at the expense of people who simply want to be better informed about their next possible president.
