http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/romney-convention-coverage-cable/2012/08/23/id/449505?s=al&promo_code=FD5D-1 Networks to Cut Out Ann Romney Coverage Three of the major networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, will not broadcast Ann Romney’s address to the Republican National Convention Monday night, The New York Times’ Jeremy Peters reports. Instead, the networks will all be showing crime dramas. CBS will run “Hawaii Five-O,” ABC “Castle,” and NBC “Grimm.” The networks have informed the Romney campaign they will broadcast just an hour of convention coverage on the final three nights. The decision leaves the opening night of the convention in the hands of cable. “I don’t think it’s the decision that Bill Paley would have made,” Russ Schriefer

Yet, at the Democratic Convention, an accused rapist as a keynote speaker will get full coverage by the same networks. Meanwhile, the country club RINOs of Missouri snivel over a candidate who made the mistake of believing the opinions of a nondescript doctor. I already advocate Congress giving all of California back to Mexico. Perhaps we should throw in Missouri. Viva la revolucion.

Russ Schriefer, a senior Romney adviser, told the Times. He was referring to the executive who ran CBS during the halcyon days of Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite.

The networks are scaling back their coverage of both conventions from four years ago, leaving the gavel-to-gavel duties to cable or the web.

OK, folks I'm taking bets right now--What are the odds that the networks play Sandra Fluke's Dem Convention speech live??? Here's where we test media hypocrisy and bias once again!!

Why would anyone want to watch either of the conventions. When the nominee was in doubt, it might have been worthwhile, but if you have not decided who you are going to vote for this election, you are an idiot.

Relying on Todd Akin's sense of decency has not worked. Within hours of his idiotic comments about "legitimate rape," Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS pulled out millions of dollars in funding for the Missouri Senate race. Akin didn't get the hint.

Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, withdrew all funding from the Missouri race. Akin still refused to quit.

Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, a major Christian and tea party favorite, immediately called for Akin to withdraw from the race -- nothing.

Even Sean Hannity, the most true-blue Republican and...
