[Ed. – Dems are really getting desperate.]
What in the world are South Carolina Democrats thinking? Who thought it was a good idea to ban C-Span from live coverage of the Democrat state convention? C-Span wasn’t specifically targeted – all the cable news networks are shut out, too, except for MSNBC. The excluded networks are not taking the decision well.
Every political junkie in America knows that C-Span is the place to go when looking for coverage of anything political. This is particularly true during political conventions and other large partisan events. The cable channel’s live coverage is unsurpassed. Viewers don’t have to worry about partisan journalists or talking heads from standard cable news networks chiming in or interrupting coverage for commercial breaks. South Carolina Democrats have decided to give MSNBC, the most partisan liberal-leaning cable network, exclusive rights to live coverage. All the other networks, including C-Span, CNN, and Fox News Channel, are required to wait three hours after the convention ends to show their live footage.
