I just finished watching the presidential debate on CNN. I tried having an objective attitude on both Mitt Romney and President Obama and their comments on economy, energy, jobs and education.
However, I felt moderator Jim Leher and CNN were very biased in coverage, giving more time (four minutes) speaking on issues to the president, and Obama was the beginning speaker. I distinctly heard both candidates would be given equal speaking time.
Other persons also watching the debate may disagree with me, but when the debate started, it was specifically stated both would be given equal time.
