Health Care Reform: Final Vote Coverage

As we await a final vote in the house on health care reform, perhaps in the 10pmET hour, the newschannels are going extra hours. Fox News brought in their weekday daytime and primetime talent including Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity. On CNN, the network-declared Best Political Team on Television is in for non-stop coverage and on MSNBC David Shuster and Ed Schultz are anchoring coverage. In between the talking heads, the networks are carrying some of the house debate leading up to the final vote.

Gonna be here a bit longer. I just ordered a pizza for and me and cameraman, Bruce. Thin crust. Giordano’s. Wish it was Pizza Hut.
