On What Grounds Can a Court Force MSNBC To Include Kucinich in Their Debate?
Advertisements [?]
It really doesn't bother me that much, the only big story about him being there, will be the fact that he sued to get in the door.

But it is troubling to me that a judge can compel private entities to include someone in their private functions or risk being shutdown by the government. Not exactly a road I like treading upon.

It seems as though there should be no equal time law coming into play since this is MSNBC, the cable station.

Its nice that you're happy Kucinich is being included, but the legal rationale for this is what really interests me.
