Ignore Convention Pundit Blowhards; Watch C-Span

Last night I started watching the Democratic National Convention on cable TV, I got so angry at the blowhard pundits that I turned to C-Span. No filters, just the convention speakers. Did I get bored? Not for a moment.

In the musical interludes between the speakers, I surfed back to the other channels covering the convention and had to listen the dumbest commentary imaginable, which had nothing to do with the analytical or emotional thoughts or feelings I had while watching the convention unfiltered on C-Span from 8 p.m. to after 11 p.m. EDT.

So my advice , blow off the blowhards and experience the moment all by yourself. If enough of us do that, the TV folks can save money by not paying the know-nothings and invest that money into honest-to-god reporters who produce real journalism.

Update: Bryan Murley from Innovation in College Media points out in comments that is also providing live coverage with no commentary. Thanks Bryan.

    The MSNBC Internet live feed doesn’t have the commentary either.
