Most people --even those that have a disdain for politics will be watching the GOP Debate this evening on Fox News Channel. And the reason why, obviously, has a lot to do with The Donald. What will he say? Will he get in the other's faces? Will he scream and yell--will they scream and yell at him?
Pretty much riveting television even if most of it won't take place even though it appears something of significance has to happen, it would figure.
Thursday's debate, as noted, will be televised by Fox News --a division of the Fox TV Network, which owns a lot of TV stations, like in the Bay Area, KTVU/Fox2. I bring this up because, given the huge amount of pub this event (and it is an event) is going to generate, I'm surprised KTVU isn't doing an analysis show immediately after the debate. Certainly the ratings would be significant--yes, I know KTVU has to run network programming--FOX network programming, but it's August, and ratings are traditionally low --why not a waiver? I'm sure Fox would grant KTVU that waiver. So why would not KTVU run a thirty-minute reaction show? Frank Somerville is a fairly astute political observer and the station would have no problem getting some political analyst like a Larry Gerston, for example, to co-host the show. Seems too obvious from this corner.
