Found this on the St.Pete Times web site. Buzz has some info, but if you watch the video on the “Tampa Bay residents” link, be ready to become ill! The questions from local residents for the debate are of course hand picked by CNN. Obviously the people were hand picked also as there were more questions from liberals than conservatives! No surprise there, but I had some hope that there would be at least some balance. :)

I think this debate is a HUGE mistake for the Republicans, especially after the farcical first You-Tube “Debate”, and CNN’s OBVIOUSLY staged Clinton Infomercial/Democrat “Debate” ....

I disagree.. I think it’s a step into the 21st century.. its “air time” for the candidates.. period.. I think it would be interesting to know how many folks watch ONLINE vs on the TV..

Better dour than a drama queen IMHO.

Republican YouTube Debate Questions: A Big Yawn

| 1:56 PM
macvspc.jpgMore than 5,000 video questions for the Republicans have been uploaded to YouTube for tonight's debate on CNN in Tampa, Fla. That's quite a bit more than the 3,000 or so vids uploaded for the Democratic YouTube debate this summer.

Another difference between the two debates: The videos that YouTube users are submitting are drop-dead boring. A CNN employee who's been screening them says "think Mac. vs PC"  Whereas many of the memorable questions for the Democratic debate were both well-made and funny -- think of the animated snowman's question on climate change -- Republican YouTubers tend to be dour and lo-fi: "regular people with video cameras."

What to make of this? Republicans are all brain-dead, creativity-free gun zealots? No, because a lot of those videos were posted by Democratics. But judge for yourself: After the jump, a video question we're told is representative of the batch CNN has gotten for tonight's debate.

I am becoming increasingly convinced that the wealthy, powerful, and somewhat archaic media conglomerates that have controlled the messaging to America for so long are beginning to crumble. As they begin to deteriorate under the weight of a more democratic media system, opportunities to infiltrate the pervasive and corrupt lies and spread truth in love are becoming abundant. As America continues to grow fatigued and sluggish from decades of the mainstream media's preaching of godlessness, bright lights are beginning to shine in the most unlikely media places. And like any small light in a pitch black room, the effect will be unmistakable. - Brian Fisher, Coral Ridge Ministries

It does a superior job of captivating audience interest, which ought to lead to better ratings. IMHO. However a marketing guy would know better than me.

Local report: The footage showing boats at the marina and the sun out are not current. It's dark and so far, the local media is reporting there will be protestors as follows: the homeless, anti-war and exotic dancers (I think they're in a tax reform group) and who knows who else?

The hype goes on. Gloria Borger is reporting from St. Pete to Wolf. She's talking about the holidays. "All eyes will be on Mitt Romney." (yeah, but i Fla, they are pushing Rudy). So, CNN is already spinning a debate that is hours away... Wolf, "One by one the candidates are arriving." duh

Fla Gov is on. It’s too early as in never for him to be considered for VP but they’re spinning it. Too bad Charlie’s Jag isn’t in the live shot with his boat Freedom by his condo. He likes his toys.

Man from Glad interview with Wolf. Don't get mad, get glad.

Wolf, "If you see my mother, tell her "hi". Crist, "I will." Gee, such a tough interview...

Anderson Cooper’s usually a pretty straight shooter. I guess we’ll find out today if that’s an illusion.

Shep’s wins the eyelash competition though. Did you see Anderson interview Glenn Beck. A skinny guy with white hair interviewing a bulkier guy with white hair. I needed to adjust the brightness on my set.

Ron Paul supporters are yelling in unison and have lots of signs, the homeless, et al, are leaned up against the bldg Crist lives in which is office floors and residential above - no access residential.

The other protesters are in my favorite park, Pioneer Park across from The Yacht Club. That's it for now. (new stadium presser today. I'm sick of corporate welfare and The Rays aren't very good at this point.)

Local abc just showed Mitt Romney leading a school marching band and giving a speech. I used to transcribe these things. I’m gonna just watch it and then return to FR to see what page and verse any trainwrecks happened on.
