The 2008 Cable Watch

There are several write ups today related to cable news coverage of the 2008 Presidential race:

• The Baltimore Sun’s David Zurawik notes the cable networks change their schedules as a result of the public’s interest in campaign coverage. He mentions the new programs from Campbell Brown, David Gregory and Bill Hemmer and Megyn Kelly as evidence.

Michele Greppi speculates in TV Week about what happens when the election is over. “This presidential campaign has provided such a sustained high for Fox News, CNN and MSNBC that cable news followers are asking whether the cable news channels risk a crash when the political drama subsides,” writes Greppi.

• The Newark Star-Ledger’s Carl Golden thinks glass-half-empty when it comes to the eventual deluge of political coverage as the Democratic convention approaches. “My advice to those who are interested in learning and understanding what’s going on at the convention: Buy a newspaper,” he writes.
