So it is Friday and I was dreading posting all day. I knew 360 was probably going to be marginally better than Thursday night and I was right. I did not comment on Ms Phebe’s post because I think I was holding my frustration in but I am in the same boat as she was in on Thursday. I was so disappointed in Thursday 360 I could not believe it. I figured Friday’s 360 would be much of the same with the exception of some wording. Remove “fundraiser”, insert the words “campaign trail” and we would have much of the same. During these times I am thankful that I come from a country that at most spends 5 weeks on a election and the focus would never be put on issues such as have been covered in the past two days. In Canada, the parties pick the party leader at conventions and then we vote for a party. No primaries or caucuses. No two year campaigns. We call an election and get to business and I could not be happier about that sometimes. So for my post on Friday’s show I basic covered it in one sentence recaps. I think it is all this really deserves.
Hillary and Barack united and it feels so good…..or does it? It was a supposed love fest in Unity New Hampshire.
Candy Crowley and David Gergen joined Anderson. Talk of the first date, chaperons and such.
Beat 360 and the Shot ended the show and I thought it was clip worthy. I really enjoyed the viewer winner’s caption.
During the second hour of 360 on Thursday night they did actually air a piece about Zimbabwe. After the sitting through the first hour and being an “all of the above” from Phebe’s post, I switched the channel to watch Daily Show and Colbert Report but Ms. Phebe kept recording and we are lucky enough to have the clip since most people did not get a chance to watch it when it aired. Just a warning some images may be hard to watch.
Have a great weekend everyone and to all our Canadian readers, have a happy and safe Canada Day weekend ~ Sapphire
