Maybe judges should intervene. Intervention occurs in every round at some level.
The judge has to intervene.The question is to what extent. Politcal bias, no.
But as an educator in argumentation, I suggest that judges should intervene to
not vote for questionable evidence. Especially in the age when anyone can write
anything on a blog, it is imperative that judges dismiss "evidence" from blogs,
when the opposing side says "this evidence sucks, look at it"  The side
advocating the evidence should have the burden to demonstrate that the source
has some level of credibility. What level is situational determined.
