Nbc To Fight Ruling In Candidates' Debate
NBC News said that it will seek to have an appeals court overturn a decision issued Monday ordering it to include Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich in a Democratic presidential candidates debate in Las Vegas, NV tonight (Tuesday). In his order, Judge Charles Thompson had ruled that if MSNBC went ahead with a debate that included only Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards, he would issue an injunction stopping it. "Had it been established at the beginning that they'll only take the top three for the debates, I wouldn't have any problem enforcing it," the judge said. "I'm somewhat offended that a legitimate candidate was invited to a debate and then uninvited under circumstances that appear to be that they just decided to exclude him."
