Funnyman Politics | Twitter Festival | Cockroach TV

TVNewser: As the perfect release of some election steam, President Obama and Mitt Romney kept the heat on each other. But at last night’s annual Al Smith dinner last night, it was all about the yuks. TVNewser covered the entertaining event at the Waldorf-Astoria.

GalleyCat: If you still are Twitter skeptic, this might change your view. The popular worldwide social media site is hosting a Fiction Festival next month. We get to save on writer’s cramp, while increasing our carpal tunnel. Win Win!

TVSpy: Not for the faint of heart. A KNBC reporter got an unwelcomed visitor during a live shot–a cockroach! We’re not sure if the reporter noticed the creepy crawly, as he was totally focused on the story.
