PoliBlog: A Rough Draft of my Thoughts

  1. I remember the first time I watched MSNBC. It was Summer of 1996, their first week of operation. I heard that TWA flt 800 had crashed in the Atlantic off NYC. I had been seeing promotions about the new News Channel, the one that would be technologically far ahead of CNN. I turned to find Brian Williams pointing to his Rand McNally map to try to show the viewers where the crash was. No pictures, no electronic maps, no file footage, just the good ol’ Rand McNally. He continued to show the site on the paper map every 5 minutes for the rest of the evening. Someway that night still sums up MSNBC to me.
