Top Dems Say They'll Skip CBS Debate

According to The Huffington Post, Democratic contenders Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Edwards, and Bill Richardson have all announced that they’ll skip a December 10th debate, to be hosted by CBS News in Los Angeles, unless the network can come to an agreement with its striking employees.

Note that all four candidates’ statements refer to those on strike as "workers" (Hillary gets the word in three times in two sentences), which sounds better than saying you’re supporting news media professionals.
