The big debate….

I’m not really going to get into the substance of the first Presidential debate, yet.  But I want to know, who on the CNN staff was responsible for the weird EKG type monitor on the bottom of the screen?  I’ve been trying to figure out what on Earth the dang thing is supposed to represent, and I have no idea.  I’m totally left scratching my head about it.

Oh- and I’m really TRYING to be a good American and pay attention- but one hour in and I’m all hearing the teacher on Charlie Brown and sooooo want to watch the Heroes I have DVRd from earlier this week.

  1. I didn’t watch the CNN debate, but my guees is that it was the response from the panels that the campaigns and news channels use to gauge reaction. The have a computer that the push buttons for negative, neutral or positive reactions to what is being said. Campaings use it for honing talking points and news channels use it for editorial points.
