  • TVNewser reports, “With the broadcast networks taking various amounts of prime time hours for coverage and the cable networks going from dawn to early Wednesday morning with live coverage, the TV time for Super Tuesday results will be huge.”

  • ICFJ asks, “Is ‘fake’ news more honest than ‘real’ news?”

  • “C-SPAN will air LIVE coverage of Super Tuesday, with results throughout the evening, in-studio guests, live coverage of the candidates speeches in their entirety, and viewer phone calls.” Also, “C-SPAN 2 will simulcast live election coverage from CBS News Radio, accompanied by graphics listing results from all 24 states with Super Tuesday contests as they happen.”

  • A CNN release announced the network’s Super Tuesday coverage. “CNN’s Best Political Team on Television goes around the clock with 40 hours of non-stop political programming and employs the most innovative presentation of election results in history for its coverage of Super Tuesday. Based at the CNN Election Center in New York and with top political correspondents and analysts positioned in key battleground states across the nation, lead political anchor Wolf Blitzer, joined by Lou Dobbs, Anderson Cooper, Soledad O’Brien and Campbell Brown, will guide the network’s special coverage, along with CNN’s team of political analysts and reporters. In addition, the CNN Election Center undergoes its biggest test of the election season to date as voters in 24 states head to the polls.”

  • A release announced, “PBS and The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer will provide complete coverage of the results with a three hour live special broadcast anchored by Jim Lehrer starting at 9pm ET.”

  • A Bloomberg release announced, “Bloomberg News will deliver nonstop multimedia coverage of Super Tuesday late into night via Bloomberg Television, Bloomberg Radio andBloomberg.com and on the Bloomberg Professional service. As voters cast their ballots in the Democratic and Republican primaries and caucuses, Bloomberg will provide comprehensive Super Tuesday coverage from New York, Washington and Bloomberg’s network of bureaus across the nation and around the world. Bloomberg viewers and listeners will be kept up to date on Wall Street’s reaction with reports and interviews.”

    ONLINE MEDIA

  • Variety reports, “Newsweek and the Washington Post are betting that Super Tuesday warrants extra Web attention. On the night when some 50% of presidential primaries and caucuses occur, Newsweek and the Post will be putting their big editorial guns in front of webcams for six continuous hours of live coverage, which the BBC will simulcast to its stations around the world.”

  • A release announced, “AccuWeather, Inc. today announced the launch of its ‘get out the vote’ campaign titled Forecast Your Future: Vote! The campaign includes PSAs to be shown on the Local AccuWeather Channel digital-tier cable network and on the leading weather web site, AccuWeather.com. The PSAs feature well-known on-air talent encouraging viewers to influence their own political ‘forecasts’ by exercising their rights as U.S. citizens to vote in the ongoing primaries and upcoming presidential elections.”

  • Fortune reports, “Two years ago, AOL was the belle of the Internet ball as its owner, Time Warner, entertained teams of suitors hoping to cozy up to the once-dominant Web portal. Microsoft offered to buy half of AOL, but the board of Time Warner demurred. Yahoo offered to acquire the company with stock, which was also a non-starter. In the end Time Warner settled on a deal under which search giant Google invested $1 billion in AOL in exchange for running its search business.”

  • CNet News reports, “AOL announced on Monday that it has purchased Goowy Media, a company that has created technology for widget creation and analytics reporting. AOL has been partnering with Goowy since early in 2007; financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.”

  • A Dinner For Judith

    mediajudy.jpgBloomberg’s P.R. Expert (and White House Correspondents’ Association dinner After Party hostess) Judith Czelusniak literally and barely blew into town on the tail of yesterday’s nasty thunderstorm for meetings with the producers of Bloomberg TV’s Money and Politics (which had Barney Frank and the Rob Portman on last night and has previously had Rudy Giuliani, Lamar Alexander, and Hillary Clinton on…but never Mike Bloomberg?!?)

    More important, Czelusniak almost missed an uber-vibrant dinner in her honor at the Palm….including usual suspects and friends Mike Allen, Hope and David Bass, Tim Burger, Rebecca Christie, Tucker Carlson, Shridar Pappu, Patrick Gavin, Chris Berry, Edie Emery, Anne Schroeder, Sandra Sobieraj Westfall, Amy Argetsinger, Garrett Graff (it’s his birthday today…we swear the to-be author is still like 22 or something…)John McCaslin, Anne Schroeder and Janet Donovan.

    Attendance being high, the Palm’s largest roundtop was expanded throughout the evening with tables ripped from the wall to create the soon to be famous and infinitely expandable “Banjo Formation”.

    Sorry we don’t have pictures.
