What are the real facts about the impact of lower or higher capital gains tax rates? Gibson was emphatic in his assertion that historically lower rates always mean more revenue and higher rates mean less. If this is not true or less than fully true, then the facts should be known and ABC should be called to account for disinformation of the meanest sort--through loaded questioning of the candidates.

Otherwise, I agree fully with the journalists' open letter to ABC. I could not help wondering if Rupert Murdock had somehow managed to buy out the network overnight and George and Charlie boys were pandering to the new boss at every possible turn. Please tell me it isn't so and that we do not have another FOX New--but just good old Disney doing its business to sell us more junk.
