Sending two WDT reporters to Cleveland is certainly a good idea in the tradition of old style journalism. Christina Scanlon and Brian Molongoski got the assignment. I remember one time years ago the same company sent a TV female anchor and I to NYC to cut promos with Rather and Wallace.
A white knuckle flight on People's Express was not their fault, but we did have to share one hotel room. I don't know if Ms. Scanlon and Mr. Molongoski got separate rooms.
As I recall there were two beds or at least a company policy that you had to keep one foot on the floor at all times.
Also in politics today, Jefferson County GOP Chair Don Coon called the Hotline today for a pleasant and informative first hand account of the week in Cleveland. Mr. Coon said all is well and that the convention is going well.https://soundcloud.com/newzjunky/jeff-graham-show-july-20-2016
That's a far cry from the outrageously corrupt cable news reporting where they harangue delegates to react to the latest on MelaniaGate, and get mad when they say they don't care.
I watched an MSNBC punk just brutalize Senator Dan Coats of Indiana over the topic of plagiarism and the narrative that a campaign that does this can't be trusted to run the country. It was crazy to watch.
And last night, cutting away from Natalie Gulbis for more nonsense from Rachel Maddow and Brian Williams.
I will be comparing closely their tone next week in Philly, where the NBC Decision Desk is already predicting a convention filled with hope and vision.
