Clash Over 38 Studios Deal at RI Gov. Debate

October 27, 2010 -

The 38 Studios $75 million Rhode Island deal got a slight bit of airtime during this week's Rhode Island Gubernatorial debate. The fun begins at the 23:31 mark in the debate. The Providence Journal covers much of the debate in its write up.

Seven candidates are running in the Rhode Island gubernatorial race, but only four were at this week's debate. Those candidates were Democratic General Treasurer Frank Caprio (who is getting a lot of air time over his disparaging comments to President Obama about not getting an endorsement), Republican John Robitaille, independent Lincoln Chafee (an old Senate friend of the President), and Moderate Party candidate Ken Block.

Moderate party candidate Block strongly criticized Independent candidate Chafee for saying that he would consider suing current Governor Carcieri and the state Economic Development Corporation over the 38 Studios $75-million loan guarantee. Watch the video to see the back and forth.

MattsworknameRE doc, everyone has a tendancy to let emotion get ahead of them, especially in an annoymous forum like the web. We have have those moments. Ip however has nothing but those moments. it's why I stopped responding to him, regardless of what he thinks or05/21/2015 - 11:17pm
DocMelonheadNo offense, but I see your behaviors in the comment sections uncalled for.05/21/2015 - 8:51pm
DocMelonheadHell, I could use both Goth_Skunk and IronPatriot as an example of such behavior between the two.05/21/2015 - 8:43pm
Andrew EisenMock? Ridicule? No, we're talking about serious threats and abuse, not people being cheeky or mean. Big difference.05/21/2015 - 8:42pm
DocMelonheadIn fact I see both mocks and ridicule between both the GamerGate Supporters and GamerGate Critics.05/21/2015 - 8:41pm
DocMelonheadAs for the Harassment, well, this is the internet; people will mock and ridicule whoever they want, whenever they want, at all times.05/21/2015 - 8:40pm
Mattsworknamegoth I think all media news outlets have that disclaimer05/21/2015 - 8:39pm
Andrew EisenThat's an... interesting way to interpret that.05/21/2015 - 8:36pm
Goth_SkunkAnd re BBC vs Rockstar: Ahh. I missed that. Woops!05/21/2015 - 8:33pm
Goth_SkunkAE: The entire disclaimer is a valid reason why I don't take it seriously. Particularly the part where they say "the information contained herein may not be necessarily accurate or current." Because fact-checking, like math, is haaaaaaaaard!05/21/2015 - 8:32pm
MattsworknameI take all media reporting with huge skepticism. the Mary sue Included. that said, there not as bad Jezebel.05/21/2015 - 8:27pm
