@JAANZA: YES, THERE IS A SHORT ATA POST.....A PHOTO OF AC MINUS THE GANG.
GLAD YOU GOT TO VOTE WITHOUT A HASSLE. WE DID OUR CIVIC DUTY....AND CAN BREATHE A SIGH OF RELIEF.
FORGIVE ME, BUT MELANIA DID NOT LOOK LIKE A FUTURE "FIRST LADY." EVEN BROOK BALWIN WAS LAUGHING. SHE LOOKED LIKE A PINK BARBIE WRAPPED UP AS A PRESENT.

Thursday's first hour was all political. Hopefully Anderson took a moment in the second hour to mention the amazing Chicago Cubs win of the World Series.

I was two minutes late. The on-screen title was "Trump, Clinton Holding Dueling NC Rallies" and Jim Acosta was reporting. His report included a clip of Melania Trump's anti-cyberbullying speech and then several past examples of Trump cyberbullying via Twitter. When Anderson interviewed Kellyanne Conway his second question was about the irony of Melania's speech, "...if it's not okay for kids to do this why is it okay for Trump?" Conway differentiated between personal tweets and political tweets, Trump's were always political. For the rest of the interview Conway served up the usual spin on Melania's speech, Trump's message, Hillary is more negative, we need to talk about the FBI investigation, yada yada yada.
I didn't stay for the panel of 8; so fed up with panels of a gazillion pundits.

When I got back to 360 Phil Mattingly was already reporting on the Hillary campaign, the FBI investigation, dissing Trump and her message. John King delivered a "By The Numbers" piece. When stating a Utah poll showing Trump leading but with only 37%, King said it was far less than Romney's 72% four years ago. Maybe there wasn't enough time to point out Romney had strong ties to Utah besides being a Mormon. The panel of 8 started again.

Randi Kaye reported on Melania's anti-cyberbullying speech in Utah; Kaye included info on Melania's background and had several comments from attendees. I wasn't interested and when the panel of 4 (or was it 5?) women convened to discuss Mrs. Trump I left again.

Anderson began the last segment stating "More breaking news tonight..." Trump has big support among hate groups. That is not *BREAKING NEWS*!!! It's been going on for more than a year. Drew Griffin had a report but I watched Hayes cover the Cubs win.

I didn't watch the second hour but checked in at two minutes into it; it was the exact same story from the same time as the first hour.

Addendum to yesterday's post - Although most of the offices in the county building closed at 5 pm, the voting place was open until 7.
Here's to hoping all ATAers vote.

Disappointed in this show. No mention of the voter suppression ruling in NC. Let a panelists state KKK was equaled to Rev Al Sharpton. There is little respect for the uoung black panelists. Someone talks over him. No talk about the crossover vote. No talk defending our due process of the law. Regarding the emails. No talk about Republicans statements of stalling legislation and appointments to Supreme Court if Hillary elected. Unfortunately if the congressman doesnt like what someone is saying just gets loud and interups. Sad...

That loudmouth from Georgia is "ex" because he was defeated in a run for Senate last year. Now he's a lobbyist in DC

No surprise.

Sorry there was no post on Wednesday night, but the CUBS WON THE WORLD SERIES! I fell down on my duties as I was too caught up in the game to care about AC360. My apologies, but as a life long Cub fan as VP Joe Biden would say this was "a big F-ing deal" to me.

And yes, I voted early and can't wait for Tuesday and this election to be over.

Wonz.
