How to Pick Which Election Coverage to Tune Into on Tuesday

With less than a week left until election night it's time to start making plans — not what election parties or events you're attending, this is a much, much more important decision— who you're spending the evening with, teevees-wise. The media has been as important this campaign as the candidates — and since McCain is saying they've all been fooled as to the real state of the race, I can't wait to see the results. I know who I'm watching, I've been so CNN-loyal the whole campaign, the thought of abandoning my Wolf wouldn't happen by a hair of his chinny-chin-chin. I might peek to see what the other kids have going on though, so luckily there's a whole passel of lists to help us decide who to watch.

To see them,


Men's Vogue has ranked the news teams broken down into crucial details like what their set looks like, their biggest scoop during the campaign, and who their MVP talking head is. They said my poor Wolf's set is "Monitor-cluttered set design ripped off from Shatner-era Star Trek Enterprise." But John King's map! Rules!

New York Magazine has rounded up the Top Ten Cable News Election Coverage Gimmicks, including yes, CNN's "Perception Analyzer" that line graph thing they used during the debates — but a few I even missed. Fox had a text-in flash poll? The sample and results didn't turn out as randomly as some would hope. If you're into gizmos this list can help.

Finally, my list of Top Ten Newscasters That Push My (Remote) Buttons. While there are quite a few CNN-ers on the list, my precious Wolf is nowhere to be found.

Who are you tuning into for your election night coverage?

MSNBC and CNN for the most part. I won't be able to laugh at much Tuesday night until the race is over. Hang in there zeze.

I'm going to watch CNN and Comedy Central. I love Wolf Blitzer and John King's map on CNN, and I think it is the most unbiased out of the news channels. I'll also watch Comedy Central because I love Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, it's sure to be a riot! If Barack loses, at least I can laugh through my tears :) juju - :rotfl: at the baby not going to come out if McCain wins. I don't blame him/her!

Honestly, Comedy Central, because it is a "joke" gives you the least bull, they get to do what other news shows can't do Steph, I'm trying, but I'm not good at optimism...

My husband and I are going to a little get-together that some married friends are having. She is pregnant and due on November 6th.... it might be a big night in more ways than one! (She has said that if McCain wins, she doesn't think the baby is going to want to come out.)

Comedy Central; but I gotta say I am nervous and I don't think there will be anything funny Nov 4th - I seriously see this thing turning!

This is one situation where I do NOT want unbiased, fair coverage. I want slanted, partisan coverage. I need my tv people to either be celebrating with me or commiserating with me. I'll probably just flip around and setting on Comedy Central though.

Comedy Central. I have no need for the major networks. ;-) I'd prefer to read the statistical updates online and then get some laughs out of it with Stewart and Colbert.

During the duration of the campaign, we've watched both CNN and FoxNews. We try to keep it balanced, btw the left and the right. During the election night, probably going to be the same way. Back and forth (when one goes to commercial, go the other one :D).

I'll stick with the History Channel. I can bury my head in the sand for the night, and have one more good night's sleep. ;)

I'll be tuning into two networks. One that I love and the other that presents a more balanced view - hopefully in an effort to give myself a well-balanced perspective.

We don't do TV, so I'll either be watching the results online or seeing coverage at a bar.
