    Thankfully, she's still in tomorrow's debate on Jan. 14th. Yeah, can we really expect anything different from a commercial sponsor? Most of the sponsors for the 14th debate are competitive local media. Apparently, the principal sponsor for the 29th debate is the Belo corporation. Follow the money, honey. Who's behind the Belo corporation?

    Yes. Because BELO's is the one on local stations and will be the one that people WILL SEE. This is very important.

    I've been on the phone all morning. This is what I was sent by an Executive News Director in Austin. A very nice man who was quite helpful:

    Thank you for taking the time to write us concerning the upcoming Texas Gubernatorial debate.

    The selection process for inviting candidates to participate in debates on WFAA and other Belo Corp. television stations is based largely on materials from the Federal Communications Commission and other authorities.

    The criteria for participation includes whether a candidate: receives significant levels of public support in independent public opinion polls, e.g.15 percent, which is the minimum used by the Commission on Presidential Debates; has received substantial campaign contributions from varied sources; has previously held significant public office(s); has received a substantial level of votes in prior elections for the same or comparable office(s); will be reported by news agencies in election night returns; and, has received significant news coverage from a wide range of media outlets.

    The FCC and other bodies grant stations the right to exercise good faith news judgment in determining which candidates are invited to participate in televised debates, and to use reasonable news judgment in reaching such decisions, with the intent to neither promote a candidate nor create a disadvantage for a candidate.

    We are grateful that you would take the time to write and share your comments.
    So basically, so much for Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, because Mr. Smith would not be allowed in the debates!

    This name kept cropping up repeatedly and he is a real piece of work. I spoke to him.
    Michael Valentine (Executive News Director, WFAA (Dallas))
    Phone: 214-748-9631
    It sounds like Mr. Valentine is largely running the show on this debate.

    A good response to this is to write a lot of LTEs to every daily paper you can find.

    Guess we gotta round up the posse again. Spread it around just like we did for tomorrow's debate! They're not going to just give up so neither should we.

    Does anybody have an email address to start spreading?

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.

    I wrote a letter to the reporter and she replied back. Here is her letter to me
    Nicholas,

    Thanks for your thoughtful note. I just wanted to point out that the Dallas Morning News did a front page news story on Medina and her campaign just this week. Here's the link: http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcont...a.3f4d9e5.html

    I note that the Austin American Statesman also did a profile of her two weeks ago. We have blogged and included Medina in numerous stories. For someone who hasn't raised much money, who's never run for a state office before (grant you, Wharton County GOP chairman is important, but it's not a major office), I think this newspaper has done a responsible job of covering her.

    Many of her supporters believe we should treat her equally to the two biggest Republicans in Texas, who have won statewide elective office numerous times, whose decisions effect virtually every one of us, who are national figures and have raised millions from thousands of people. I'm not sure that is realistic.

    Powers much greater than me have decided that Medina -- or any candidate -- should be at 15 percent in the polls, done well in previous runs for office, raised substantial campaign cash or met other set criteria to be included in a debate. I have reported that fact.

    And as a reporter I will continue to report on Medina, her viewpoints and whatever she does to make news.

    Again, thanks for taking the time to write.

    I basically said I thought the real story was how 10% of Texans were being ignored

    Of course, me being a Texan, it's easy for me to do that

    So if you aren't a lifetime politician you're out? How many people can we gather up to picket that debate if they do not include her after we go ballistic on them?

    "We?"

    Why "we," when "wasn't me" tends to work so much better?

    Surely you've learned this lesson by now.

    Couple of things.

    First, why the FCC rules? We are the $#@!ing state of Texas governor race NOT a $#@!ing federal race!

    Second, who writes the rules for the FCC? Might be interesting to find that out. I would put money that the Reps and Dems wrote the rules.

    Pissed as hell over here cause I was Debra to be included in the local station damnit!

    Your best route is to hold your fire until after the debate. Hope for a stellar performance, and then capitalize on that as your justification for why she needs to be involved in the future.

    Hope she drops a couple of big lines, and then run with it from there.

    Yeah that's what I'm hoping too. I was planning on watching it tonight but my plans changed! BOO!! Hopefully that her website will put it online somewhere.

    Well, if tonight wasn't enough of a "breakout performance" for Debra, I don't know what is. She was incredible!

    Yeah, she had so much pressure on her tonite with all she had to go thru just to get in this debate and also knowing that it might be her last debate if she did not do well, all in front of a national audience. Well she was totally composed up there! She's definitely got skillz.

    Well if Debra loses the governor's race there's always the 2012 presidential election.

    (And I'm only half-kidding about that... tell me she doesn't have "Tea Party Dream Candidate" written all over her...)

    Even a loss isn't going to bad. Her name recognition is going shoot through the roof if she keeps this up, which will open up lots of other doors.

    Anybody know if the debate video is archived anywhere? I'd love to see how she handled herself.
