Re: Cartoon Network HD
I'd rather see the Cartoon Network HD bandwidth, and at least SOME of the Spanish network bandwidth used instead to bring us at least ONE of the C-SPAN networks in HD.
C-SPAN's coverage of both the RNC and the DNC were gavel-to-gavel - and provided the ONLY gavel-to-gavel coverage of the events without incessant political jabbering. They didn't take the focus off of lesser known speakers.
Since FiOS doesn't HAVE C-SPAN HD, we were left with SD coverage on C-SPAN or varying levels of political pandering, commentary and highlights on the other networks. PBS at least gave us MOST of the prime time events, but even they paled in comparison to C-SPAN's coverage.
Even if you don't watch congressional coverage, there's also the Whitehouse Correspondent's Dinner each year - with C-SPAN providing live coverage of the ENTIRE event.
Wow, do you have some extra time on your hands.
Just kidding, I could do with one c-span in hd after cartoon hd.
I know you meant that in jest, but if you think about it, the conventions only occur once every 4 years and its pretty sad that with all of today's distractions they now compete with entertainment programming. Its a sad statement of the public's attention span, insight and perception of American politics.
