The Stephanie Miller show joined by voice diety Jim Ward
and FOX radio's Alan Colmes.
The first day of the Democratic National Convention has opened in Charlotte NC, including more than 100 talk show hosts, along with news organizations who will broadcast over the next 3 days.
Progressive hosts broadcasting from Radio Row include The Stephanie Miller Show, Thom Hartmann and Ed Shultz along with most of broadcast TV and the blogsophere.
We think FOX news may be there too, since they confuse the right to protect the President with the right to vote and the GOP meme of 'voter ID'.
MSNBC celebrated a major milestone on Wednesday when it topped its rivals in primetime convention ratings for the first time in its 16-year history.
From the HuffPo:
TVNewser was the first to report the news. An MSNBC spokesperson confirmed that it was the network's first-ever convention victory, and the first time that it beat its rivals head-to-head while all three were covering the same political event.
MSNBC's victory came on the first night of the Democratic convention in Charlotte. The network was first in both total viewers (4.107 million) and in the coveted 18-49 demo (1.432 million.) CNN came in second, with 3.88 million and 1.368 million in both categories. Fox News trailed far behind, drawing just 2.398 million total viewers and 550,000 in the demo -- a far cry from its ratings on the first night of the Republican convention, when it drew a whopping 6.87 million viewers. MSNBC was also the only channel to grow its ratings from 2008. All of the other networks saw their ratings drop sharply.
NBC was the overall victor for the night, drawing 5.02 million viewers.
