South Carolina Debate Format Upsets Leaders

According to this article, the leaders in the polls are grumbling about the format of the South Carolina debate tomorrow.  My question is, why?

The questions in tomorrow’s debate will be asked by the moderator with no back and forth between the candidates.  In my mind, this actually favors the leaders.  They can continue to spout their status quo rhetoric without fear of being challenged by their opponents.

How great would it be to see Ron Paul confront Guiliani face to face about his mockery of Paul’s defense of habeas corpus?  What if he could question them on the constitutionality of their answers?

Having a corporate media reporter moderate and control the conversation plays right into the hands of the front runners.  It allows them to prop up the exact candidates they choose.
