…they would have talked through the whole thing and nobody would have ever actually seen it. From Jesse Taylor (italics mine):
CNN’s been talking since Obama was officially nominated about how Obama is the first black major-party candidate, yadda yadda yadda.
So, the highest ranking African American elected official in the country steps on stage…and CNN cuts away.
Then they come back to cover a seven-minute musical number by Melissa Etheridge replete with shots of teary-eyed delegates.
I don’t think it even occurs to them that people would want to watch the convention and not their idiotic bloviating.
These guys suck at their jobs.
