Rate the Debate

From an e-mail I received today:

Tonight is the only night vice presidential candidates Sarah Palin and Joe Biden will face off in a debate. As tens of millions of people watch, will the issues you care about be heard?

Last Friday, thousands of people logged on to to score the media's performance in the first presidential debate.

Tonight, we need even more people to watchdog the press. Let the anchors and pundits know whether issues that matter the most are getting airtime in the political arena.

How to fill out the Citizens Media Scorecard:

Go to We'll post a link to the Citizens Media Scorecard shortly after the debate begins.
Click on the Scorecard link and send us your feedback as you watch the debate. (It's easy, short, and anonymous)
Check back at afterwards to see results.
We can't let the media hijack this one-time debate with gotchas and partisan bickering.

The media play a central role in elections as Americans prepare to make a decision about the future leadership of our country. Tonight, you can cut through the media spin alongside thousands of others who are fed up with election news that puts gaffes and gossip ahead of the issues.

Make Your Voice Heard Tonight!
