For some reason, I live in Pittsburgh but still get MSNBC on a non-digital channel. Perhaps because I don't live in the city but rather in the suburbs? You would think Comcast would have almost the same lineup inside the city and just outside it.

Wow, "distinguished blogger Johnny Dollar!" I am definitely impressed. No, this is not me being sarcastic.

Nice job johnny! Breitbart has long been a great news source, but after seeing Andrew Breitbart on Red Eye and Real Time and now seeing the kind of broadcasts he'd be doing if he had a TV channel, I'm an even bigger fan.

The staff at Fox News don’t seem to realize that Bloomberg is one of the biggest backers of gun control in the country. Bloomberg would hurt McCain very badly.
If I pined any bias on Fox it would be that they have a New York-centric view of the world.

Congrats to Morton K and Fred B for 10 great years. The Beltway Boys is a great show with good analysis of what is going on in Washington.

Is RedLasso really shutting down? I just joined on Monday. This can't be!

Yes, it is. I just went to the site. Too bad. Now, I have to take a RedLasso embed video out of one of my blog posts.

Kevmack thanks for the link. I've just added it to the main post.
Embed videos seem to be still working, Mike. And my link to the Wallace/Gretchen video is still good. But I may have to create my own video to replace it when it goes bad.

I'd say there is a .000000000001% chance that RedLasso will reach agreements with all the networks to provide content to the site. In other words, RedLasso is dead. Dead, dead, dead. I'm just so mad right now.

I hated RedLasso, their streams always stalled on my computer.

In the four days that I had it, I loved it. Now, I have nothing because RedLasso was merely the Napster of TV feeds. If RedLasso were to--by some miracle--re-emerge as a pay site, I wouldn't mind paying a small amount ($10 or so) per month to comb raw feeds and create clips from those feeds.

I'm with Vince, RedLasso didn't work very well on my mishmash of FireFox, Opera, Windows, and Linux that I task between in my online perusings.

I only had trouble with RedLasso if I tried fullscreen the player or skim through raw video before a search had finished. Also, I had trouble with it on TVNewser.

"Gretchen Carlson Turns On Chris Wallace"
i kept waiting for gretchen to "turn on him."
well duh of course she "turns him on." he accurately and candidly points out that things in her mouth and to a lesser extant on her head are indeed "fetching."
colbert sucked.
