The Storm

I’d be willing to bet that even a show about the debate over the debate would get high ratings.

Perhaps that is why ABC News led “World News Tonight” this evening with the criticism they are getting over the nature of the questions. It’s primarily from the Obama camp, but even Clinton supporter Ed Rendell, the governor of Pennsylvania, said he was “disappointed” with the way it was handled.

By midafternoon on Thursday, more than 15,500 comments were posted on the ABC News Website, and MoveOn launched a petition and announced plans to run an ad protesting the network. The group has endorsed Obama.

Here’s the YouTube moment — Charles Gibson being heckled at debate’s end.
