DNC Night 1: Hollery!!!
AUGUST 26, 2008
On Night 1 of the Democratic Convention the Cable Networks declared the Hillary War on. With nothing else to report on (as they saw it) the loudest voices were not those of Kennedy or Michelle Obama, but the Really Big Story: themselves. “The dangerous situation for Obama is that there are thousands of reporters with nothing better to do than find a PUMA to talk to.”, Howard Fineman (to Matthew's face last night). As Jon Stewrat would say "Feed me!!!"
PS: They could have covered the real Denver, and the real American former middle class, as Bill Moyers did on Friday. Very worthwhile:
