How about a big Thank You to C-Span?
Without C-span, none of us would have been able to watch the electoral vote & protest.

The MSM has gone over to infotainment, or they ride 1 big story relentlessly.

I've seen plenty of DUers bash C-Span at times as being "too conservative," but I don't see the bias...I just see them covering EVERYTHING.

For any of you who missed coverage this week, C-Span is rerunning the vote, & it is also available on-line.

So how about a thank-you email to C-Span?

4. Keep in mind, they generally run the house and senate sessions
whether anything exciting is happening or not.
Not to belittle the fact that they showed it, but it's what they do.

I also don't want to seem like I am discouraging people from writing, because if we keep telling them what particular issues we are interested it, they'll replay things like this and do more shows about them off-hours.

5. That's the whole point!!!!
It's what they do.

They show you your govt at work, whether exciting or boring.

Without them, we'd get ONLY what the MSM wants us to get.

9. True, but they didn't have to replay the 2000 certification either
I saw that earlier today. I've never seen F/911, so I appreciated it.

10. That's all I meant,
make sure folks don't just write 'Thanks for showing the Congressional debate' but instead explain that the issue is important and to please continue covering it in general.

14. I'm a C-SPAN junkie...
I watch both C-SPAN ans C-SPAN 2 all of the time...I personally like watching C-SPAN 2, because of the Senate coverage...even though I do watch alot of just regular C-SPAN...
