Obama: Make Debates Widely Available

From, an

open letter to Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Howard Dean urging the DNC to make the video from any Democratic Presidential debate publicly available after the debate for free and without restriction.

All well and good, and a step forward.

But why doesn’t Obama go the next step, and decline to participate in debates where heavy-handed “owners” of the sessions — NBC being the chief offender at this point — refuse to make the material available? He and the other candidates should make this a condition of participation. Suggestions don’t cut it.
