I'm sure they'll cover it during the week at least.

14. After 10Pm every week day, MSNBC airs a block of documentaries
such as Lockup, to Catch a Predator, etc. ON weekends, they reair a bunch of them.

That's right. Think about what's best for this country-an Obama presidency!

19. Not Complaining Much... But Getting THIS Kind Of Coverage Is A Slap In
the face when those of us who Marched in D.C. several times NEVER got this kind of stuff. In fact, even C-Span BARELY covered it!

Not knocking Obama, but am REALLY upset with MSM!! If you protest, NO COVERAGE... if you have Oprah it's wall to wall! This is really UNBALANCED!!!

73. Me?? I Haven't Complained About Either Of Them... You Must Have The
wrong person. Honestly, I REALLY don't think I've denigrated either one of them. Perhaps there's somewhere you could find postings, I really don't know but I would like to see where I have complained about either of them

I may have said I didn't think Obama wasn't ready yet, or that I've never watched Oprah myself, but I hardly think that's complaining. The only point I was making is that I spent some hard earned money to travel to D.C. several times, one time taking my granddaughter with me and felt let down that we got so little coverage.

Is there an archive here that we could check out my statements?? Hey, I don't know... I don't think I've ever said ANYTHING negative about Obama, but I might have slipped up once... maybe twice. I don't think so because I don't fell that way.

I don't dislike Obama at all! I didn't question this event, I questioned WHY we who marched were unable to get support for showing our discontent with Iraq!

I like the crazy uncle in the attic joke too. He didnt use that here, but sometimes he refers to Cheney as that.

I thought I heard a Republican say they might vote Obama, but CSPAN still doesnt have this shit fixed, and Fox is already on the attack.
