The Pennsylvania Democratic debate starts at 00:00 UTC... just over 15 minutes from now. In the normal case, I would have left work a little early and run home to be sure I could watch it live. But no... ABC is delaying it for the West Coast. It will not be on until 03:00 UTC here. Hours after it happened. Which is just ridiculous for a news event. As several West Coast bloggers have commented, they are treating it like a "show" rather than as news. (Of course, I get pissed off at the 3 hour delay for shows too sometimes.)
This is ridiculous.
It really makes me want to drop a Slingbox in the house of a friend or relative in the Eastern time zone. Very very annoying.
(Yes, I know, they will probably get more viewers this way, but still...)
And for the next 3 hours and change I now have to avoid all my usual news feeds and sites to avoid spioilers. Spoilers for a DEBATE. Urg.
