Interesting - even the BBC this morning (UK time) commented that it seemed a tie, with if anything McCain coming away with slightly more to feel satisfied about.

I haven’t owned a tellytube for about 2 1/2 years, but I learned to quite watching CNN-or NBC, ABC, or CBS for that matter, because I couldn’t stomach the far-left editorializing of the news.  Ditto #2.

I have learned to watch CNN and FOX.  One is quite liberal, the other concervative.  In doing so I get both sides of the story - somewhat.  But the one thing I dislike about both stations is their tendency to say “..this is what they said but what they meant was..”  They then waste the next one or two hours doing talkey-talkey.  I don’t even bother watching NPR - its wasted time.
