Apparently someone forgot again to invite all the candidates to this debate. Surely no decision was made to invite only those candidates who have a chance of winning, as them Mr. Herbert would have been all alone. So, does the press just decide on their own who is interesting enough to listen to? Why not show them that you can think for yourself and vote Libertarian.

Wonderful. A non-debate about non-issues by 'candidates' with non-differences. Gee, thanks for the choice between chocolate and vanilla.

This is no debate. It's a staged photo opportunity. Where are the other candidates?! Where are the other choices?

The voters should ignore this and look for real alternatives.

It's neither fair or balanced to exclude other candidates from the debate. Your duty is to report the news. When you create news, like this debate, you have an obligation to invite all candidates for this debate. You have excluded Andrew McCullough from the debate. He is the only candidate who has something other than the status quo to talk about. You've deny your readers the opportunity to investigate the candidates and issues in full and it makes you appear biased towards the current political machines. When you appear biased, you also appear as though you've been bought by those entities. So who owns SLC Fox News? The Democrats or the Republicans? Certainly not the Libertarians.

There are four candidates on the ballot for governor. FOX 13's Max Roth betrays his establishment bias and performs a disservice for FOX 13's viewers by presenting them with a false choice.

Did the two-way debate shed any more light on the issues or generate any news? I think not.

Why not for a discussion among the four gubernatorial candidates for voters can get a side-by-side comparison of who they are and what they're about?
