Light errands all got done early, n I got home in time to catch the beginning of that entertaining reality gig known as the Presidential TV Debate. I'm not sure why I like to see this type of thing, because it probably won't change my mind or opinion of the candidates. The bickering nature of the forum tends to get on my nerves. I'm glad I'm no longer doing those nasty High school Debate Team things. It does seem to get over-heated, n embarrassing for some parties involved. But strangely, I wanted to see it...
I went down the hill to BBM's place to Guard the Fort a few hours, n after settling in, I realized I couldn't watch the debate on TV because two separate recordings were going on, tieing up both the cable n regular TV channels. I really didn't want to watch the recording SciFi channel instead.... So I was going online anyhow, my normal thing to kill time here, n saw a news thing on the browser to watch the debate online, (Which at home I won't even try to load), so clicked n encountered "You must subscribe to CNN to view this" bubble. Never mind. Then I went to check my Yahoo mail n there at Yahoo News I had a free link to a live debate link, so at least I didn't have to miss the entire thing- if a bit time delayed.
So I listened to it while I deleted scores of junk mail in the old account. "Health care, blah, blah, blah..." I know all about how Romney's implemented HC plan in MA, my state, isin't working for me, btw. Then switched over the tab to see the page, n what really bugged me was the instant comment feed of a bunch of folks picking on every little thing like Obama "Um's" n trying to decide if Romney won by virtue of Obamas serious to neutral expression. I really don't like those picky-une analyzers butting in.
Also, during the recap after-show report on abc, Twitter feed comments were flashed onscreen. So I guess the way we view n gather opinion now will always be influenced by whatever folks feel like sharing online, whether biased, professional, twisted, or not, TV or not .
