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.
