What Did You Think of Last Night’s Coverage of the Wisconsin Recall?

Politico’s Dylan Byers thinks last night’s coverage of the Wisconsin recall was, “The worst night on cable news.” That’s his headline anyway.

Really? The worst? Ever?

Seems to me it was exactly the way it was supposed to go. MSNBC’s Ed Schultz rooting for democratic challenger Tom Barrett and Fox News’ Sean Hannity rooting for republican Gov. Scott Walker. With CNN in the middle prepared to break in to Piers Morgan‘s retelling of the Queen’s Jubilee with their call (8 minutes after NBC, 2 minutes after FOX), reporting and analysis.

This is the state of cable news at the moment. No critic or viewer should be surprised at this point by what the cable news channels did last night. But does that make it “the worst?” What do you think?
