So Much For the First Amendment

A Nevada judge has ordered NBC to include Kucinich in tonight’s Democratic debate. Wow. No, really, WOW. I never thought I’d see the press come under the control of the government to this extent. Regardless of what I think of Kucinich or NBC, Kucinich does have a right to run for President (although I wish he have the decency to lay down and let it go), a right to speak, but not, in my opinion, a right bully his way into a debate like this.

NBC should be able to control this type of content in any way they like. Even if it’s bad TV or bad politics.
The network has said they would appeal if the judge acted against them… should be fun day in the courts.

Hat tip, Memeorandum. The link above is from the LA Times Blog.
