What is wrong with the media?

While we understand it's "a business".  It should supply people with unbiased information.  So WHY does the media not cover political debates if the incumbent doesn't show? 

Not just for the Governor's race, we see it happen over and over again, in Fort Worth.  In the last mayoral election here, there were three candidates.  Two of them showed up to every speaking event in town for months.  Mayor Moncrief showed up to one. 

Certain campaign managers tell their clients not to talk.  It's easier not to stick your foot in your mouth if your mouth is closed.

WHO pays the price?  The voters that would like to be educated on the candidates but can't get the information.  And the rest of us that get stuck with those voted in by those that don't know any better.
