Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Murdoch's NY Post deemed it "nation's great loss" that networks chose not to air RNC speeches; where was the concern when networks went "dark" on DNC?

Following a night of Republican National Convention speeches from former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Senator John McCain (R-AZ), among others, an August 31 editorial in the Rupert Murdoch-owned New York Post stated: "[I]t was to the nation's great loss that the broadcast networks chose not to show last night's principal events."

The Post had a different take after networks went "dark" during a night of Democratic National Convention speeches from Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA), keynote speaker and Illinois Senate candidate Barack Obama, former Vermont governor Howard Dean, Senator Tom Daschle (D-SD), and Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Senator John Kerry. From the newspaper's July 28 editorial page:

In case you didn't get enough class warfare and War-on-Terror revisionism at the Democratic convention on opening night, last evening's bash-fest should have more than made up for it.
