I think this media method will get more viewers than the other TV network debates.. what do you think?
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.
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
Congratulations on correctly calling it! :)
