“What a waste of 34 minutes,” said FNC’s Shepard Smith at the conclusion of another day of Chicago political theater. Gov. Rod Blagojevich held a news conference around 3:15pmET today, and all the cablers covered the event. While he spoke, Smith provided his own commentary, and the Twitter users added their input on CNN in real time. Some of the Shep highlights: “Hello, Blago, can we talk about the impeachment stuff please” and “Where’s that guy from Iraq, that journalist from Iraq, who threw the shoe at the president, is he available?” Some Twitter highlights: “Blago has been impeached. We no longer care about his platform. Try apologizing to your state. Unbelievable!” and “Great way to pass a Friday. It’s like a soap opera.”
