The YouTube/CNN Democratic debate was fantastic.
It put to rest forever the claim that we need professional journalists to conduct presidential debates.
Long ago I grew tired of the stupid, repetitive questions that our so-called journalists always ask at these debates. The contrast between their questions with the amazing, real, down-to-earth video questions that were shown this evening was eye-opening.
When the debate was over, Wolf Blitzer came on. The first thing out of his mouth was a "horse race" question mixed in with one asking about discord and disagreement among the candidates. I had to turn the tv off immediately.
With respect to this kind of journalism, the netroots has just won.
