21. I meant no offense
Edited on Thu Oct-28-10 12:59 AM by Ter
AOL is not the internet, it is merely a service that offers internet. Remember GEnie? I had it in early 1993. CompuServe was another at the time. I used Mosaic web browser back then. I just checked and it's release was April 22, 1993. So the WWW has been available since at least early 1993. (web_browser)

Not sure when e-mail was first offered, but it was quite some time before 1994. I did, however, have cable TV then, and there were several political channels besides CNN. Headline News, C-Span 1 and 2, and a few others.

I'm not trying to pick a fight with you at all, please take no offense to this. But saying there was no internet, e-mail, or news channels other than CNN is clearly not the case.
