Media Experience




While I was at the Paradise City Tavern last night the bar had MSNBC on their T.V.s. I was very pleased with the coverage on there, they had real time updates from each state and showed all footage of Obama and McCain's speeches without commentary.

That was the only media that I paid any attention to last night. This afternoon I checked out some of the usual news websites like CNN.com, NYPost.com, and WashingtonPost.com.

On CNN.com, in this story entitled "Obama's election redraws America's Electoral divide" they quoted my favorite part of Obama's speech last night:

"To those Americans whose support I have yet to earn -- I may not have won your vote, but I hear your voices, I need your help, and I will be your president, too," he said.


On NYTimes.com, WashingtonPost.com and NYPost.com, the main story is about Obama's new transition team.

On CNN.com the main story is entitled "Obama's Job Creation Challenge."
"Economists generally believe there's little Obama can do to stop more job losses in the short-term, even if he's able to get a new economic stimulus package passed by the lame-duck Congress and signed into law by President Bush.

"Superman couldn't change what's in store for the U.S. economy. It's going to be ugly," said Rich Yamarone, director of economic research at Argus Research."

None of these sites seem too biased to me, they each featured coverage of the general events including Palin's future.

I most loved watching MSNBC in real time and experiencing the news with other Americans around me. That news was delivered faster and I felt the most involved with those stories because they had engaging video and there was no delay.
