Truthdig Radio airs Thursdays at 4 p.m. Pacific time on 90.7 KPFK in Los Angeles. Check your town’s listings or ask your public radio station to carry Truthdig Radio.

In this Web-exclusive segment from Truthdig Radio, FAIR’s Peter Hart argues that the presidential debates are little more than theater and, “in reality, they don’t have much impact on voters.”

Hart is the activism director of Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting and the co-host of CounterSpin.
