Let's change the debate format

Tyler, Texas (KETK) — The very weak Republican National Committee chief, Reince Prebus, and I hope I said he name correctly, because I sure as heck can't spell it, has had a great awakening.
And, it's about time.
You see, it has come to light that CNN and NBC are doing a documentary and series on Hillary Clinton.
What a surprise!
Although NBC says it's the entertainment division, and not news, producing the mini-series, this decision is drawing heat.
Prebus now says with this sort of blatant endorsement of Clinton, it may be time to say “no” to CNN and NBC when they want to host the Republican Primary debates.
Some say sour grapes and I see their point of view.
However, after watching the last round of debates, I agree with him.
Does anyone remember John King from CNN asking crazy questions? Does the candidate prefer "Elvis” or “Johnny Cash,” or other idiotic things like that.
I knew, then, the debates didn't mean anything.
Also, with these debates, the candidates always get off point and go on rants their consultants told them to get on.
There have been rumors the GOP will get conservative talk radio hosts to moderate.
That's the base.
And for the democrats?
Let them do the same thing and have their own love-fest.
I think these debates have become more about looks and being cute than the original purpose of informing.
I’d watch Mark Lavin tearing into Chris Christi.
That's my point of view, what’s yours?
