For use this week -- CNN's viewer -comment line, 404-827-0234
Let's light up this switchboard during this crucial week for Democrats, and at least be heard regarding CNN's coverage. You can leave a message anytme or speak to a real person during regular office hours. Fox will not give us fair coverage; ;MSNBC is least watched. Our best chance to reach voters interested enogh in the conventions to watch cable coverage, is CNN.

put it on speed dial - it'll probably make things easier! B-)

We all must have at least one person we can bump off the speed dial without feeling bad about it. ;-)

2. The stakes are high for democrats.....
Did everyone see the Larry (9wives) King show? Larry has planted a comedian, Mo something, to delivery funny lines after each democrat's speech. Larry King is a super rich bastard and which ever party is in office will not affect him. He kisses ass both ways. What makes these super rich think that the audience has the same disrespect for democracy as they do? I haven't been on DU all day. Hope it was discussed here and e-mails of complaints sent to CNN.

5. CNN has jumped the shark with the rest of US corporate media.
Their coverage is an excuse to pimp * and deride Dems and its not relevant to me. For example: Tonight Judy Woodruff used "Kodachrome family" in her description of John Edwards. She could have just said they were "photogenic." Why the allusion to Paul Simons irony of nice, bright colors?

I'll take my coverage from C-SPAN and PBS. And if I want an opinion check, it will be from AAR. Im not interested in Faux wannabes.

Still, I will be glad to flame CNN's comment line for any specifics reported here. I'll have to take your word for it since I'm not likely to watching the CNN train wreck.

9. So... how's MSNBC's coverage?
Sometimes they get it right.

I honestly think they should go all hard news. They can't win trying to play FOX's game.

CNN just plain sucks.
