Double Standards and Fair Elections

From Joe Newman over at Citizenvox.org:

There’s an interesting breakdown on the FAIR (Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting) site

of how the herd mentality of the media seems to have a double standard

when it comes to the presidential candidates and their views on public

financing of the general election. While Public Citizen is

non-partisan, we do feel strongly about public financing of elections

as one of the best ways to reduce the influence of special interests in

politics. Sens. Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) and Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) have

introduced the bipartisan Fair Elections Now Act, which would create a

voluntary system to publicly fund congressional elections. You can help

this effort by signing on to be a “citizen co-sponor” of this legislation.
