CNN's been talking since Obama was officially nominated about how Obama is the first black major-party candidate, yadda yadda yadda.


So, the highest ranking African American elected official in the country steps on stage...and CNN cuts away.

Then they come back to cover a seven-minute musical number by Melissa Etheridge replete with shots of teary-eyed delegates.

Wolf Blitzer then tells us that CNN is dedicated to covering more than just the speeches. I assume in the same way that ESPN is dedicated to covering more than just the House of Commons by not fucking doing it at all.
