Candidates Seek Changes in Debate Format

Oct 7, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Both presidential candidates, Sens. Barack Obama and John McCain, are calling on the Commission on Presidential Debates to use Internet technology to open up the general election debate formats, Wired reports. The request, in a letter written by Obama and endorsed by McCain, is spurred by the efforts of the bipartisan group Open Debate Coalition, which seeks to make the debates more populist in nature and more accessible to the Internet community by forgoing copyright laws applicable to the debates. The next debate is scheduled for tonight with NBC News’ Tom Brokaw serving as moderator.
