CNN's coverage of the empty DNC convention is amazing!
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 09:21 PM by Demonaut
show up early, show empty seats, give negative talking points, use pro-bush commentators...................yes, this is what consolidated media ownership is all about. Can't wait to see the "glowing" coverage of the RNC convention.

on edit I do mean "glowing", the pandering and bush brown nosing will hit a new record.

2. I Thought Larry Kings show . .
with Richardson, Mitchell, Gergen, and Dole was fair with good ideas and insight.

Mo's segment was funny

10. It's going to be tough watching Larry King this week
I find Mo Rocca very annoying. Couple that with the fact Larry will laugh hysterically at literally ANYTHING he says makes it all the more annoying in a cheese grader on your face kind of way.

Mo's suit tonight screamed "look at me, I'm funny".


Haaaaaaaaaaaaack!

3. I really believe that more and more
Americans are seeing the right wing spin for what it is. The more desperate they become the more transparent they become. It is so obvious.

6. I'm hoping against hope you're right.
So very, very, very, hoping. When they put up Drier this afternoon, I gave up and turned off the TV. I figure Rohrbacher's mug will be mouthing the memes tomorrow. :mad:

I really would have liked to 'hear' Born to Run. I'm pretty good at lip reading but, it's a bitch when it's mostly narrated. Grrrrrr

They better CC the Convention!!!!!!!!


:mad:

5. Ooh, that sucks, sorry to hear it
That's crappy that they don't do that for everyone who needs it. Fingers crossed that they CC the actual speeches and such!

7. I'd be really surprised and pissed off if the Convention
isn't. I doubt the DNC or even the RNC would not make sure both are CC. Not that Kerry would lose my vote :evilgrin: But, it's nice hear what's going on ;)

9. I wonder if the free speech cage was the idea of the DNC or a plan by
the RNC and the RW media to discredit Kerry

8. Do you get C-SPAN?
They CC don't they? I thought ALL programs were CC. I'm sorry to hear that's not the case. That really stinks! :(
