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. :)
November 28, 2007 1:56 PMMore 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 looks like your early thread is too early too. lol Three hours to go. Where is everybody? Probably in traffic or eating.
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.)
I pulled up the youtube debate link and got a flash of Ron Paul. Looks like CNN or Youtube is pushing their guy.
CNN...You Tube....I guess we’ll find out which candidates (if any) have the balls to push back against biased questions from the Corrupt News Network and ambush questions from the internet slackers.
What net stream can I get for the debate?
