Egypt tunes in for first televised presidential debate

The televised Presidential Debate has a long history in the U.S. - long enough that's it's risking becoming relegated to cable channels.
  There was a much better audience response to Egypt's first televised presidential debates, according to a story from MSNBC.
The spectacle of politicians being questioned in public was riveting. “It’s the birth of democracy in Egypt,” smiled Arafa Abu Al Fadel, a 36-year-old production manager at Egyptian state TV. “We have seen this in France or Europe. It gives us a chance to see the candidates, it gives us a chance to choose … I am now confused, but that is a good thing!”
  The debate was carried live by three private satellite stations.
