Edwards is still in the race…


One of the Campaigns strengths is the use of the media to illustrate a point about the disparity in coverage. I watched the New Hampshire returns and barely heard his name. I listened to NPR and even though he got 17% of the vote, he got 2 minutes out of 60 minutes of coverage.

I listen to KTLK most of the day on and off and right now the only host who is talking about Edwards is Thom Hartmann. Well, Randi Rhodes did mention Edwards yesterday, but she had to throw in the phrase “white guy” in the process. Really. I listened to Wendell on the way home and almost ripped my radio out of my car.

He was talking about Nevada and Obama and Clinton, that was it. He spoke of the Culinary Union and how Obama and Clinton were in the running for their endorsement. Really, it was more about Obama and Edwards and the CU did not allow members to vote, it was based on a vote by the board.

So, as the black out continues, the Edwards campaign takes a poke at the coverage of the debate and proves it’s point brilliantly.

I'm new to political blogging but have been writing most of my life about different things. I campaigned for President Clinton when he was just Governor Clinton in Orange County. I graduated from Smith College with a BA in English and a minor in Film. I work full time, have a lovely four year old daughter named Charlotte, my husband teaches full time at Cerritos College in Norwalk in the Music Department. Gary has a Ph.D in Ethnomusicology from UCI. I hope to go back to school in some form or another, maybe sociology or economics. I've even thought of Law school. Our newest edition to the household is our Weimaraner Sophie.

    I just did my part to try and raise $7 million in one day for Edwards. Have you?
