Following up on our show yesterday on the Commission on Presidential Debates and its exclusion of third party candidates. On the program, Janet Brown, the Executive Director of the CPD, was reluctant to give out a phone number where people could express their concerns about the CPD’s policies. She said all the relevant phone and fax numbers could be found on their website: www.debates.org. Well Democracy Now! Producer Jeremy Scahill set out to try and find those numbers on the CPD website. Call the Commission on Presidential Debates and tell them what you think: (202) 872-1020
