Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

kron4 news (san francisco) tonite announced when president obama signed the sequester into existence... then they actually discussed what was going on - and ... to my shock and amazement, after some decent explanation, the anchor stated that neither the president or congress was going to change this until the people started to react.

THEN... (are you ready) the anchor stated this was an attempt by the republicans to get rid of all the programs of the new deal that they had hated - the safety net, social services, etc.!

i'm sorry i don't have this verbatim - my jaw was so far on the floor that i didn't have the computer on or fingers ready to transcribe!


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

if any one else saw this amazing news coverage (amazing because it WAS "news coverage", unlike the other garbage on cable media outlets), please share your reactions!  this was the digital over the air broadcast (i don't do cable or satellite) and was on the 5:30 pm (pst) news.  i am sure it will be rebroadcast later - i'll try to be at the ready to get it down.

okay - my horse is waiting - need to check on him since it was very warm today and he's still wearing his winter "fur" - so i'll be back later.

just wanted to share this bit of truly "breaking" NEWS - (by real journalists instead of talking heads).

Sat Mar 02, 2013 at  1:54 AM PT: just realized, i can do better than link to the segment Nonny0 found for us - i can embed it for all to see upfront!

enjoy, folks!  and send positive vibes that this is just the beginning!
