When a television network has the power to decide which candidates are "worthy" of addressing the American people, it robs the American people of their most precious right to the free flow of information and dissenting points of view. I am an artist mostly known for acting in movies, but I am also a citizen and a voter who resents the control that big money, big media, and entrenched political interests have in deciding what I should see, what I should hear, and what I should be allowed to think. ABC and other media censoring Dennis Kucinich- and others legitimately running for the office of President of the United States- by not allowing them to be part of televised debates is, in my opinion, an outrageous manipulation of and disservice to the public, as well as a criminal misuse of public airwaves. If you agree, please make your objections known to ABC and other media outlets similarly restricting public speech and political information.
 Thank you,
Viggo Mortensen.

i resent the fact that this guy who acts in movies and has a total disconnect from the realities of the real world has a bully pulpit to spew forth his hatred and propaganda.

penn gillette said it best (paraphrasing) i find it absurd that because i can juggle i have the opportunity to give my political beliefs

frank sinatra was asked by a reporter what he thought of the viet nam war to which he replied....im just a singer

What makes him anymore disconnected than you or I? Just because he\'s an actor his comments are invalid? What was Ronald Reagan in his previous life? Penn Gillette can verbalize his political beliefs because he lives in a supposedly free country, makes no different what his job is. Frank Sinatra? Are you kidding?

this is well said.  i dvr bbc world news america and watch it at night (well, sometimes it\'s morning by then) - but i\'m disappointed in them as well for covering the two celebrity types and not AT LEAST the 3 front runners.  it\'s a shame.  thankfully the candidates have websites and they link debate footage.  unless you pay ABC to do differently than what they are now paid to do, i think they\'ll continue to violate.  i do my part by NEVER tuning in on the major network channels.  i don\'t know if it does any good, but it feels right to me.

in writing this i decided i\'d better research who owns channels i do watch.

IFC - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbow_Media

BBC - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC_television

TLC - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TLC_(TV_channel)

although i could use the lessons, i don\'t watch the history channel.  i searched it out of curiosity and YIKES!

Truth:  it's OK if they don't understand.  if you follow it, stay true to it, and respect it, you could be in store for the greatest journey you could ever imagine.

If you want to see which companies/media the Big Six own, here it is in one handy-dandy link:

http://www.freepress.net/ownership/chart.php?chart=main

Click on the "TV" button for some interesting data.

The BBC will at least report on issues in the US that the major media stays away from. On the story I posted in the other thread with the link to the writer Greg Palast on voter fraud, you might be surprised to find out he was a BBC reporter when he uncovered the massive ballot shenanigans in the US elections.

thanks!!!

grrrrrr... i do record a movie now & then from Sundance.  that one doesn\'t surprise me though.

i do like BBC WNA, and i\'ll continue to record it.  it\'s good to have some clue as to what is going on outside of our country.  as far as election coverage, i\'ll continue to email them that it\'s disappointing.

and just seeing the words Clear Channel in that link boiled my blood!
