    Just curious.

    I can't take the talking heads on the TV news channels, so I streamed C-SPAN, and am tuning into the opinions of USMB members for the post-debate wrap.

    CNN, I wanted to see the audience they had reactions with the lines.

    Overall, looked like Obama had more positive lines then across the scale then McCain.

    I watched the first part of the debate on CNN at the gym.

    Listened to the middle on KFI on the ride home.

    Watched McCain seal the victory on FNC at home.

    Streaming on CNN. No talking heads during the debate.

    I don't like the pundits talking during the debate or the "reaction dial" lines. It gives the network too much control over how the at home audience responds.

    I'll make my own decision, then will listen to everyone elses.

    C-span. The only way to watch important things like this.

    Then turn the TV off and do not switch it to a 'cable' network. If I wanted to hear opinions from either side I would come to USMB .... where at least a few people have a little sense. Not interested in hearing paid reporter's opinion's! :cool:

    I also watched it on CNN. I personally thought the respective lines just changed depending on who was speaking. The red line went up when McCain spoke and the blue line went up when Obama spoke. I thought that was a pretty consistent trend throughout.

    I envy you. I, unforunately, had to be a good host. Our guests requested CNN because they thought the graphs at the bottom of the screen were interesting. Ugh!!!
