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.

Not-So-Super Debate for Super Tuesday

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Specials, Cable, Editorial,

Barack ObamaThe only two Democratic Presidential contenders remaining sat down Thursday night to address the issues in the last Democratic before the colossal event dubbed by the media. For those of you who didn’t see it, the event was marked by two hours of hemming, hawing, and several pointless questions. In other words, it wasn’t a huge departure from the other debates we’ve been treated to thus far.

Senator began with his opening statement, first thanking former competitor in a very classy beginning parry. He made the prediction, to stirring applause from a group of voters which included famous directors and , that either he or will be the next . But let’s not count the Republicans out yet.

Obama also referred to the fierce battle he and his fellow Senator are currently waging for the Democratic nomination, calling their race “competitive.” Nice euphemism. Nobody’s buying it, though. He also said it’s time to take the country in a “new direction” and said this (the election) will be a “defining moment” in history.

Clinton, who was carefully neutral in a brown pantsuit which she erringly paired with some simply terrible turquoise jewelry, looked on with an ingratiating smile before beginning her own opening remarks. Sure to get her digs in, Clinton called Bush’s “a failed administration” and predicted there will be a “heap” of problems to solve when either she or Obama makes it to the White House next January.

Hillary Clinton, Paris Hilton Return to Letterman

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Late Night, Talk Shows, CBS,

Paris Hilton, David Letterman

In the next few days, the will be welcoming two ladies who - for two very different reasons - have a lot at stake.

This coming Monday, New York Senator will be making a sit-down appearance with the late night host.  Although visits from the former First Lady are not unusual (she did have a short bit on his return show in January), this particular date comes at a critical time for the presidential hopeful.  The in-studio chat will happen Feb. 4th…one day before the very important Super Tuesday.  Will she be able to sway anyone outside of New York?  Who knows?  But she’ll be sure to keep smiling while trying.  (And just for the record, Sen. also made a recent appearance on the show.  He read Dave’s nightly Top Ten list just last Thursday.)

After the uncomfortable experience had back in September, you’d think a reunion with Letterman is the last thing she’d want to do.  But camera time is camera time, and you know how much Hilton loves to be in front of one.  Oh - and she has like this movie to promote or something.  (Then again, she did have a perfume that got very little mention the last time she was there.)

CNN: In it for the Long Haul

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

Barack ObamaCable news network will try something never-before-seen for this year’s exciting election coverage: they’re going to squeeze all the fun out of it with consecutive forty-hour live coverage. And you thought they couldn’t possibly make poll results more uninteresting.

February’s “Super Tuesday” is the event. Coverage begins at six in the morning Feb. 5, when polls open in more than twenty states. The coverage ends at 11 pm the following Wednesday. Results of the polls won’t even be available until well into the evening of Feb. 5, but that’s not stopping CNN. Meanwhile, the network will show live coverage of candidates through the weekend, including debates. It’s all the politics you can stand, complete with tired TV anchors and plenty of pretty poll graphs. But don’t let’s get too far ahead of ourselves…the White House isn’t empty yet.

So that no one forgets we still have a President in office, will preempt network programming this coming Monday night for an hour-and-a-half-long State of the Union address. I always have a bad feeling when one of these occurs, fearful as always that the US is about to declare war on yet another country. But who knows? Maybe he’s just going to give us all health care instead of going to war. That’ll be that day.
