Obama?s speech watched by 38 million viewers.
Sen. Barack Obama’s (D-IL) acceptance speech last night reached a quarter of America’s households, according to Nielsen Media Research. In all, with over 38 million viewers, “more people watched Obama speak than watched the Olympics opening ceremony in Beijing, the final ‘American Idol’ or the Academy Awards this year.” The AP notes that “Obama’s audience […]

Sen. Barack Obama’s (D-IL) acceptance speech last night reached a quarter of America’s households, according to Nielsen Media Research. In all, with over 38 million viewers, “more people watched Obama speak than watched the Olympics opening ceremony in Beijing, the final ‘American Idol’ or the Academy Awards this year.” The AP notes that “Obama’s audience might be higher,” since Nielsen didn’t estimate how many people watched on PBS or C-SPAN.

The Right Choice for McCain
The Republicans’ presumptive nominee for president, John McCain, could make an audacious and unprecedented statement Friday. He could electrify this already-historic presidential race by selecting a vice presidential nominee who possesses bona fide economic expertise rather than standard Washington dribble. He could pick a person who would inject curiosity and excitement and instantly shift the focus from Barack Obama to St. Paul, Minn.

Hillary Clinton’s Speech Had Highest Ratings
Nielsen just released its ratings for the third day of the Democratic National Convention.  The key takeaways are:

  • Bill Clinton and Sen. Joe Biden drew more viewers (24 million) than Michelle Obama (22.3 million) — but fewer than Sen. Hillary Clinton (26 million).
  • Older viewers (age 55+) continued to dominate the TV audience Wednesday night, with 18.1% of all Americans in that age group — 12.5 million people — tuning in to the convention coverage.

VIDEO — Thuggish Cops Arrest ABC News Producer
See for yourself. Ugly stuff.

As Jane noted yesterday,

Police in Denver arrested an ABC News producer today as he and a camera crew were attempting to take pictures on a public sidewalk of Democratic Senators and VIP donors leaving a private meeting at the Brown’s Palace Hotel.

… Eslocker and his ABC News colleagues are spending the week investigating the role of corporate lobbyists and wealthy donors at the convention for a series of Money Trail reports on ABC World News with Charles Gibson.

See for yourself. Ugly stuff.

SUPERTRAIN
The stop outside the Pepsi Center was shut down, but I believe it will be possible to take the SUPERTRAIN to Invesco Field this evening. Actually, I mean this afternoon as apparently we’re supposed to arrive way early.

Gore: We Got It Wrong Eight Years Ago. Let’s Get It Right This Time.
The challenge for Al Gore is that criticizing the Bush years inevitably becomes a discussion of the 2000 election and a condemnation of the decision not to elect Gore (or not to grant him a big enough electoral victory so…
