Don't have T.V. service, so where do I look on the Web for election coverage?
self | 11/05/12 | fwdude

Posted on 11/05/2012 8:52:26 AM PST by fwdude

I swore off television several years ago, but have the occasional desire to watch important events unfold in real time - such as major elections. Anyone have a recommendation on where I can watch results come in on the web? I'd enjoy a couple of Leftist (MSM) sites as well so I can see heads exploding.

Does FOX News offer a live thread online?

I’m talking about live news coverage, not website postings. (Not that FR isn’t an excellent source ;)

Probably most network TV websites - ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox

All cable news websites - CNBC, FoxNews, MSNBC, CNN, al-Jazeera, CNN Headlines.

PBS website.

CSPAN website.

BBC website.

etc.

Of course, many of them will NOT start the live feeds until the polls start closing.

All the TV news websites will be running a scoreboard, with commentary, most will probably even have clips or even full streams from what they’re showing on TV. Since they never break for commercials during this kind of stuff they’ve got no incentive not to put most of their TV content on the web.

Thanks for this thread. I’m in the same boat you are. No TV.

My advise is to go to bed early, and next morning turn on the radio.

I will probably hook up the laptop to our HDTV (we do NOT have cable TV)....so I can download whatever we want to watch. Then, there is also XM Radio (FOX) to listen to, and MSNBC when we want to gloat....hopefully.

In the past couple of elections I have found the Salem Radio Network to give really outstanding coverage. It can be streamed from most of their larger stations.

I think VA is among the first polls to close, that’s at 7p EST. Doubt any polls close earlier than than, ‘cept maybe Dixon Notch?

FR will be impossible to get into, so DO look elsewhere. My backup will probably be the local radio station that carries Chris Plante, Rush, Sean, Mark (www.wmal.com)

But it's so much fun to actually see liberal commentators dressed in funeral black and bursting into uncontrolled sobs!

There’s also Drudge.com

My advice is to just go to bed early. There will not be any meaningful results until after midnight Eastern time.

Most TV stations have websites that live feed their local news, and I would think many of them will have an extended version tomorrow night.

I found during the debates CSPAN was the best streaming, no buffering, or freezing...however they will have call in segments, with many obnoxious, ignorant callers.

Thank you for your service to our country. For not buying the rope they want to hang us with!

And my service is STILL an ongoing battle - against telemarketers, mailers, and even my own Internet service provider, trying to sell me this sewage.

I was thinking more on the lines of live streaming coverage, t.v.-style, but on the internet.

hi fwdude

I found last night http://www.c-span.org/ worked for me to watch romney live in morrisville pa. I’m sure they’ll have election coverage.

as someone on thread mentioned they do have segments of call in people, but you can simply mute the sound for a bit and still watch.

Ain’t got no TV? Can you wait until Wednesday?
We have scheduled nationwide riots, which should
reach your neck of woods too, when you will be
given opportunities to acquire a whole assortment
of material goods, TVs among them, all free of charge.
