Any mainstream coverage of Kerry's KidsFirst legislation press conference?
I haven't seen much tv the last two days (thanks to lil' blm's acquisition of Oliver and Co.) and I'd really like to know how the shows like Inside Politics, Hardball, et al covered it.

1. I too haven't watched much t.v. But when I have turned it on, it's all
about Micheal Jackson or Martha Stewart. Unfortunately, the media isn't into children's health care.

We are definitely a shallow country!

2. Hm...maybe I should have asked IF the media covered the press conference.
The country is becoming more shallow because the media is complicit with the corporations to MAKE them more shallow.

4. Your best bet is to check CSPAN or CSPAN 2. I highly doubt if Tweety
from Hardball would give much coverage of it. I'm sure Micheal and Martha were his topic of choice lately as well. He pretty much gets on the bandwagon of whatever is popular at the moment.

5. One thing to see it on Cspan and another to see IF media REPORTED on the
event.

See, if the media doesn't report it then it never happened, just like the Dems Social Security events never happened.

6. Probably means we should make sure to forward Kerry email
to anyone we know who might support it. It may be the only way they hear of it. Might help him get more signatures and more people lobbying their Congressmen. I guess WE have to become the mass communication media for Kerry and other Democrats.
