Man Up, CNN

Show us the first Democratic Debate in the 2016 presidential election.

Maybe you really ARE “the Clinton news network”. I used to laugh at that designation because you guys attacked Bill Clinton with the same voracity that every other lame “news” network did during the Bill Clinton impeachment nonsense.

Hillary Clinton did pretty well in the debate. She was strong, attractive, defiant, unflappable, funny, human and all the rest. So why are you so averse to giving everybody in America, no matter their internet speed, the ability to see what happened instead of the chopped up pieces you present on your crappy internet website? Could it have something to do with “capitalism”?

I went to the union center in Salt Lake City, because I was afraid my internet connection was going to hang, but it was doubtful that the internet connection there was going to work in time there either.

I woke up early the next day to see if you had a full debate video and was unable to find one, so I went to YouTube and found one – in three parts – that was taken down a couple of hours later. There is a new one on YouTube that is in sixteen or more parts. Are you going to take this one down too, or possibly give the American people the right to see American political debates on your own domain?

I present number one of…

UPDATE: I have found an actual FULL version of the debate in one segment. The previous 17 part presentation is no longer needed. I still think CNN has enough help to offer the debate on their own website though.

      Thanks Josh, good to see you made it through the spam filter. I’ve had a hell of a time pulling legitimate comments out of there for about a year and a half. We NEVER ban anybody here and I always save all of them within a day.

      I could have been on television at the union center event. The former mayor of Salt Lake was inviting people in when I got there – Peter Corroon, first cousin to my favorite Democrat, Howard Dean. He saw my Bernie Sanders button and told me the ABC news cameraman was trying to find a Sanders guy to talk to. I declined, but the guy they talked to did a great job.

      I once put a comment on our local public television website after a Republican said something on television I didn’t like and I got a call to come down the next morning to respond. I didn’t get any sleep, but went down and did it. It was the most terrifying experience of my life.

      My family didn’t have much to say. My sister said I looked angry. :) I did a pretty good job, and I didn’t look that angry. :)

    I got to see a great old film on one of the myriad retro channels. Those formats are getting very popular now on antenna TV. I don’t think they’re are available on satellite and I’m not sure about cable. I guess people would rather watch old primitive television then some of the junk that’s on now.

    “The China Syndrome” is a decidedly anti-capitalism film. I’ll bet Bernie Sanders loves it as much as I do. It makes television news look really bad, and we’re talking BEFORE cable!

    I can’t think of any anti-corporate films made today except for maybe “Avatar” which uses the age-old method of criticizing important modern problems through science fiction.

      Jack Lemmon was sort of a trouble maker. He did another film that was anti-capitalistic. “Save The Tiger” was another film that showed how money can cause irrational decisions in corporations.
