I am in the press filing center for the Democratic debate at St. Anselm’s College. It is sponsored by CNN. The media presence filling the gym which is being use to house the press is larger than the University of New Hampshire debate I attended in 2000. This wouldn’t ordinarily seem to be a big deal. But the debate in 2000 was in January, a few weeks prior to the primary election. This debate is in June.
Loud buzzing is issuing throughout the filing center. The screen broadcasting CNN reads “Emergency Alert System”. It broke into Lou Dobb’s live feed. Weird.
