  •  my pre-comment is that i'd rather read about (17+ / 0-)

    it here on a live blog than to watch the hyperventilating and misinformation on the teevee.  Much rather.  A more trusted news source, with interesting info in the comments.

    Clearly, we all want to know what's happening in a really extraordinary situation like this.  It's not the regular DKos habit to be a breaking news site, but I welcome this exception.

      I'm getting all the news here. I don't have a teevee and this site is very good in these kinds of situations. plus fun discussion simultaneously.

    •  DKos and "breaking news" (6+ / 0-)

      Daily Kos actually has a proud and successful tradition as a breaking news site for major events. At the site's best, it's a lot more organized than this, with a series of coordinated motherships handling links to diaries as they become available.

      But this isn't really the sort of situation anyone expects to see on a Friday.

      In comparison, check out DKos's coverage of just about every major disaster in the past several years. Kossack contributors of breaking news have been really, really helpful at organizing critical links and information, and as I recall, were influential in saving at least one life during ... I forget, some natural disaster or other.

      This isn't our best work. But we're still trying. It's not electing more and better Democrats, but it's still what we're here for.
