How Super Was ‘Super Tuesday’?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Specials, Cable, News,

Hillary ClintonNews networks scattered to bring the most up-to-date and intensive coverage. Promotional departments cranked out somewhat frightening ads making the day look like Armageddon. And they all geared up with a vengeance for this event the media has dubbed . Now that the dust of news competition has settled, it’s possible to get a look at the results of this apparently cataclysmic event.

The truth is, very few lives were changed by the election results. Far more were effected by the massive tornadoes which ripped through Arkansas, Tennessee, Missouri, Mississippi and Kentucky (where I personally live). Super Tuesday coverage began to fall by the wayside around two in the morning (EST) as the showed weather maps and gruesome footage of horrible damage.

Late Night With Conan O’Brien


The Battle of the Late Night Hosts

Jon Stewart and Stephen ColbertIn an epic match-up, post- hosts are facing off in a battle for the ages.  It’s a contest of wills that dares a meeting of and network TV that could rock more than one snarky show.

Well, perhaps it isn’t as big as all that - but it is mildly entertaining and it’s giving a little much-needed fodder in this strange world without TV . Like as not, even the best late night programs have been faltering. is opening every episode by flicking paper footballs randomly toward his audience, and on Tuesday’s episode played with clam shells instead of monologuing. Thankfully, Colbert recently picked a fight with fellow host to keep us all amused.

Here’s the breakdown: Colbert invited Presidential contender onto , thus granting him the highly coveted “Colbert bump.” Naturally, Huckabee’s popularity increased - and even he attributed this climb to Colbert.

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Specials, Cable, News,

Barack ObamaEven those who aren’t politically savvy know about the Iowa Caucuses - perhaps that’s why they were covered on three different networks Thursday evening. The results are in, the votes tallied, and the outcome of the Caucus is pretty surprising. On the strength of these results alone, two Presidential hopefuls have already completely dropped out the race. That’s the strength of popular opinion…at least, in Iowa.

Oprah Winfrey endorsing Barack Obama has recently made it known that she supports Hillary Clinton’s bid for the Presidency, while has been on Barack Obama’s bandwagon for some time now. Pro wrestler hearts and John Edwards recently toured Iowa with singer Bonnie Raitt in tow. Celebrities are citizens just like the rest of us, and the beauty of Democracy is that we all get to vote for whomever we please. But…is it okay for celebs to be so showy in their support for this candidate or that?
