An email to Jon Delano:

Just saw the 11 pm KDKA news coverage of the US Senate debate. You didn't mention the women on stage for even a breath.

Are you only talking about the guys by design?

And, the PA poll had numbers that didn't add up to 100%. What happened to the other numbers?

PG headline:
Pa.'s Senate debate turns into Specter - Hoeffel duel

So, the one thing that was so great about the debate, all participants on the same stage, gets ignored by design in the local media.

From another source:
Betsy did a decent job -- good opening and closing, and good on questions about education, social security and the Iraq War.
