No kidding, right? But there are two big problems with the debate to talk about in this weekend’s post at Communities Digital News.
In reality, fitting a giant candidate field into an hour long debate is a square peg-round hole problem. The networks, sponsors, and even the Republican party are trying to figure out how to handle a historically large field using the same promotion vehicles they used when only a handful of people could afford to mount a primary campaign.
It may not happen every single cycle, but it will happen again. Networks need to use the 2016 primary season to figure out how to handle it.
