This time, it was NBC who dis-invited Dennis Kucinich to its sham of a debate. After inviting him just days before.
Speaking of invitations, I took MSNBC.com up on theirs when they asked if anyone would like to submit a question for tonight's debate. Here's my question:
Yesterday Rep. Dennis Kucinich has sued NBC-TV in Las Vegas over his exclusion from the MSNBC debate.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Kucinich filed his lawsuit seeking a temporary restraining order allowing him to participate in the nationally-televised debate among Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Barack Obama. So far, there's no word on whether he'll succeed in either delaying the debate or getting NBC to overturn their exclusion.
From the Las Vegas R-J: High Court takes up NBC appeal on Kucinich
(apparently Dennis got a court order to make NBC accept him for the debate)
Lawyers representing NBC Universal Inc. today filed an emergency petition with the Nevada Supreme Court asking that Democratic presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich be barred from tonight’s debate at Cashman Center. The petition states that a District judge didn’t have jurisdiction this morning when he ordered NBC to let Kucinich take part in the debate. The Supreme Court is expected to make a decision today.
