“A senior Superior Court judge is suing the Georgia Public Broadcasting network because it won’t air a debate the judge orchestrated and paid to produce,” reports the AP. Judge Dann Winn apparently donated $5,000 to GPB and says there was a “handshake understanding” the pubcaster would air a Feb. 6, 2006, debate–featuring Winn–about the morality of dropping atomic bombs in WWII. The debate is available on GPB’s online digital library. Winn, who represented the pro-bomb argument, said he wanted to challenge the idea that “America was barbaric and we were the bad guys.”
