If you listen to Howard Kurtz, host of CNN's Reliable Sources, Wolf Blitzer and the folks at CNN did exactly the right thing Sunday night by focusing more time and attention on Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Edwards in the New Hampshire debate.
In fact, Kurtz would go even further and cut off access to candidates such as Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel (and quite possibly Chris Dodd and Joe Biden.)
Sen. Dodd's people sent out a graph telling exactly how much time each candidate received during tonight's debate. It can be found at this link.
The so-called minor candidates will likely fall by the wayside before long. They won't have the money to keep up. But let's remember that throughout history, some of the best ideas have come from "minor" candidates and even third party candidates.
Let the people, not the media, make the decisions.
And for the record, if Dodd's people were accurate, Barack Obama had the most time with 16 minutes, followed by Hillary Clinton with 14:26, John Edwards with 11:42, Bill Richardson with 10:48, working down to Joe Biden, who was last with 7:58.
