Presidential Debate 2 on 1

Just read this article on the moderator bias in the Palin-Biden debate. It was interesting to see someone delineate the bias I see pouring out on almost every presidential debate that takes place including this one.

The Commission on Presidential Debates that has organized the presidential debates since 1987 is technically a non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)(3), but like every organization they are as bias as their members and sponsors. They posted their 2008 sponsors as follows:

Anheuser-Busch Companies
BBH New York
The Howard G. Buffet Foundation
Sheldon S. Cohen, Esq.
EDS, an HP Company
International Bottled Water Association
The Kovler Fund
YWCA USA

I didn’t see anything about how the moderators are choosen, nor did I see any indication of how much influence the candiates have over the selection. In any case it seems to me that conservatives should do something to keep these debates from being a two on one match.
