Switched to C-span and the whole atmosphere was different. MSNBC is stirring the pot.

Or MSRNC, as I used to call it...

But, the MSNBC crew have been jerks all along, IMO.

It existed just as much in the run up to this point. But many couldn't see it for obvious reasons.

And if anyone failed to see it flying then, I don't know how they could have missed it when they kept jerking Ed Shultz around before firing him.

I'm watching CSPAN. Sounds like there are some conversations going on and people yelling words of encouragement but no mass protests. I can't tell if all the protests were being exaggerated, if they have calmed down, or if they have been compleatly drowned out but I am seeing none of the extreme chaos that MSNBC is claiming.

Was it all exaggerated, have people calmed down, or are they just completely outnumbered now?

I think I may have heard one faint, quick boo when someone said something about hillary but I'm not sure. If it was, it was 1 person in the entire hall.

There was some noise early today but it has stopped. Nothing like the shit that went down in Cleveland.

We are united and anyone who is trying to pick fights among Democrats, well, we know which side they're on.

I stopped watching Cable "News" during the 2004 election. That was the point at which I had enough.

Had bopped back and forth between CNN & MSNBC during the day and saw what they were doing and at showtime this afternoon, moved to CSPAN. Have been there done that with how they need to create controversy so they can discuss it and fill air time rather than show the proceedings.
