  • Boehner Cuts off C-Span Cameras.

    First off, can you believe this crap? This is how a democratic system is being handled? Now I know this is just one of the many politically scumbag moves that we should be accustomed to in politics by now but really? This blatant? Closing session early was scumbag enough, but cutting off the cameras was 10x scummier. I've really lost faith in our congressional branch of government.

    Two wrongs make....well, two wrongs.

      Screamed just as loud then.
      I can ADS using more than a 2x without significant stutter! This was a good patch.

        A socialist conspirator was delt with swiftly today by the office of the great unifier Boehner.
        Live trial tonight at 11 on all channels.


        Would you like to know more?



        Joking aside, C-Span should have exclusive control over the broadcast. What Hoyer said was important for people to hear and having the guts to stand up to his own party I feel is healthy for the democratic process. There is nothing wrong about being passionate about an issue even if it goes against the stream.

          I'm a registered Independent, the only time I ever put any stock into what a Democan or Republicrat says is when they disagree with members of their own party or agree with members of another.

            Agreed I'm not a fan of Pelosi either. However I thought we moved past this BS.

              C-SPAN has always been somewhat edited. The closeup of a congressional member giving a long winded, passionate speech is actually staged. Most of the time the chamber is nearly empty with the few remaining members preparing for their long winded, rousing speeches and some may be really asleep. The camera shots to show this are generally restricted. Most of the speeches are to get on the record (and camera) for their constituents issues.

                Agreed which isn't C-SPAN's fault. If they had control of it, they'd probably do a much better job. If you've seen C-SPAN's other shows (you know when they're not basically just a congressional web cam) they're actually quite intellectual and informative. C-SPAN gets a bad rap because they're showing a show they have no control over.
