"The issue is not what separates Romney and Obama, but how much they agree. This hidden consensus has to be exposed," writes Guardian columnist Glenn Greenwald about the presidential debates as he criticizes the recent performances of the debate moderators. Greenwald also criticizes the exclusion of third party candidates. “Only by excluding those candidates and having the two parties focus on the tiny differences they have ... can this mythology be maintained that we have massive and real choice in this country,” Greenwald said. We also speak to George Farah, author of "No Debate: How the Republican and Democratic Parties Secretly Control the Presidential Debates."

Guests:

Glenn Greenwald, Columnist and blogger for The Guardian. He is the author of "With Liberty and Justice for Some: How the Law Is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful."

George Farah, Founder and executive director of Open Debates. He is also author of "No Debate: How the Republican and Democratic Parties Secretly Control the Presidential Debates."
