US Election: CNN gets my vote

CNN easily has the most amusing live election coverage I have ever seen.

In the last hour they’ve shown correspondent Greg Rees’s rap videos for each candidate (“You say Joe, I say Biden”).

Not to mention a special report from a town called Obama in Japan which is supporting…McCain?

Erm, no, of course not. The town even has a theme tune for the election: “Obama, number one”

If only British elections were this much fun.

The coverage is really engaging and wide-ranging though.

As a Brit, I find the packages that go behind the rituals of US Elections really useful and interesting.

And it’s fast-moving and really engaging.

The only thing I would say is that you would be hard-pressed to know that John McCain was even running.
