Netroots Nation

Am I the only one who was annoyed that the moderator kept texting and playing on his phone while Bernie was speaking. This was incredibly rude and unprofessional. To be blunt, the moderator they had was complete shit and shouldn't be allowed to moderate a box of expired condoms found in a dumpster behind costco. I'm not impressed to say the least.

1. Do you even know what...

Netroots Nation is all about? Or why the word net as in internet is in the title of the organisation? Perhaps he was taking pics as it happened and tweeting to utilize the internet..........and weren't all those people whose children are dying in the streets rude for protesting the man who built his political career on protests.

I'm just shocked I tell you! Just shocked!

2. He was probably live blogging the event.

 

See, there's this thing called the InterNET which gave rise to the NETroots Nation.

3. I totally agree with you Kevin from WI...

and please ignore the rude comments that you received. Of course, we understand what Netroots Nation is about - but that doesn't excuse a "moderator" texting, tweeting or whatever he was doing while Bernie was talking. Couldn't somebody else in the Netroots contingent do the blogging? It was beyond obnoxious...

6. You're not the only one. I commented on the rude moderator yesterday in an early OP

on the Netroots Nation brouhaha.

There was no need for him to text live as the whole room was full of people who could have done it just as well as he could. He was not indispensable in that role of live texter.
His job was to be a credible moderator, and he did a pretty poor job.


Edited for spelling.
