The Joe and Ray show

The Joe you know.  The Ray…WTIC News Talk 1080’s Morning Drive host Ray Dunaway…who replaced the icon of CT Radio Bob Steele many years ago…but I digress!  In this case, he’s doing a special fill-in for the PM drive host.  A sort of a post-game to the latest “debate” between Foley and Malloy.

This comes as a comment in the Norwich Bulletin takes the media to task for excluding Joe Visconti..

Your democratic rights are being stolen from you by the very media you trust to bring you complete and unbiased election coverage. Joe Visconti, an unaffiliated candidate for governor who the people placed on the ballot by direct petition, is being excluded from the televised debates by the commercial television stations.

By excluding him the debate sponsors are intentionally limiting the information you have when deciding for whom to vote or whether or not to even bother voting. This exclusion unfairly deprives voters of their right to participate as an informed electorate, undermines the credibility of the media as reliable and unbiased sources of information, and calls into question whether our entire democratic process is for sale to the largest ad buyer.

I urge anyone who cares about our state, our democracy and our voting rights to contact the debate sponsors and express your outrage.
