Which cable news station will you watch for the election tomorrow night? [View all]


I will be switching between CNN and MSNBC for the night. For the 3rd year in a row I admit I will be watching FOX as soon as the election is called for Hillary. It's one of the great joys in my election viewing night.

In the past I have been MSNBC almost exclusively for nights like this. However, this year I have watched CNN more frequently. I will have the DVR recording all 3 cable news stations for the evening. I use to watch NBC, CBS and ABC, but in my local market, there is to much local news coverage. At 11pm when the National race is called, our local affiliates are in local news.

Here are some of the laughable CNN conservative commentators

I can't wait to watch once this race is called at 11pm EST. The conservative pundits during this election cycle have been the most un-intelligent and ridiculous people I have ever seen on TV in my life. They have become cartoons.

I have never seen people so willing to look stupid on TV in one election cycle. I hope they were paid well for the destruction of their credibility.

Katrina Pierson, complete with her bullet necklace

Trump's top defender, Jeffrey Lord

The meanest woman on cable, Scottie Neil Hughes

Barbie Doll "airhead" clone, Kayleigh McEnany

What are your plans for election night?
