Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, June 19, 2019

The South Carolina Democratic Party has made MSNBC the only network permitted to air live coverage of its 2019 convention this weekend that will feature 21 of the party's 2020 presidential hopefuls -- but C-SPAN's political boss thinks the party is "shooting themselves in the foot" with the unprecedented decision. MSNBC has live broadcast rights, which comes with a three-hour embargo on footage for reporters from other outlets. Fox News has filed a complaint, a spokesperson for the network confirmed. CNN reportedly filed a complaint, too, but did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"C-SPAN political editor Steve Scully told Fox News he is "really disappointed" his network won't be able to air the event live. C-SPAN has been covering campaigns for 40 years, and Scully said this is the first time one network was given exclusive access."

Now that the DNC has chosen the goofy sister, I wonder if the ugly sister CNN will turn on them?

Headline fail, the South Carolina Democratic Party is not the DNC. In fact the acronym DNC doesn't appear once in that article.

CNN not leftwing enough? Resistance leaders Jim Acosta and Don Lemon are going to be most displeased.

You believe they had no input on the matter involving 20 of their presidential candidates?

Why do you care Sheeple/Nobias/Lieberg/JordyStPete???

You wouldn't vote for any of the dems, and as a Ruskie you can't vote anyhow.

The DNC controls everything in their party, including media coverage.

But they may not be able to control Warren.

We'll see.

I think that this is a mistake, limiting access (even to Fauxsnooze) doesn't help get the message out.
