Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

I have yet to see CSpan pan to show the size of the crowd in Des Moines!

Yet, when they just showed a Romney rally, they were sure to pan the crowd.

Why is that?

11. Let's see: CSPAN created 1979; Fairness Doctrine repealed 1987.

I know most of the senior people involved in CSPAN and have worked with a number of them going back over 20 years. You're wrong.

4. Our First Lady

Why? Because our First Lady is speaking right now and she is so beautiful, so sincere, and so moving that they can not take their cameras away from her

19. It's several blocks long... You mean the Obama crowd? Look at the length.

I remember from past rallies in 2008, that is clearly over 50k people.. it's 2-3 blocks long.

7. Switch back and forth between CNN and MSNBC.

CNN has a lot less crowd noise than MSNBC.

15. I just sent CNN an e-mail.

They had Obama's mike isolated, like the time they caught the "Dean scream."

What a bunch of jerks!

18. You mean Iowa? That is a crowd of over 50k. It's a few blocks long, and stretched to each side.

I would guess around 50-70k. Not 25k, not even close.
