Worshipping C-SPAN

There’s no way to deny the undying respect C-SPAN reaped Wednesday night during Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul‘s filibuster/one-man reality show. While late-night talk shows often poke at the channel, referencing how nerdy or dry it can be, Washington journalists and political journalists outside the Beltway raved about it without apology. As scribes of all political persuasions turned into garden variety C-SPAN junkies, many took a moment to thank the hand that occasionally feeds them.

Political blogger Jonathan Bernstein remarked on C-SPAN founder Brian Lamb being a personal hero of sorts: “Yes: Thank you to Brian Lamb, Hero of the Republic.”

Journalists can get all up in arms defending C-SPAN.

The fan club is a big tent: C-SPAN “rules!” remarks WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza, and another journalist expresses unwavering trust in the channel.
