TRIVIAL THINGS NOTICED BY A DEPRESSED ALL NIGHT US ELECTION WATCHER
3: David Dimbleby Has The Attention Span Of A Gnat
This is all very BBC-centric I know, but after spending quite some time watching ITV calling it for Kerry against mounting evidence, it was always nice to go over to the gadfly BBC whose inability to fill airtime between results was partially due to Dimblebore’s inability to stick to any topic. In particular whenever he interviewed someone on his TV screen (Simon Schama springs to mind) he would get distracted by something from the gallery in his earpiece, interrupt the interview for NO NEW NEWS and never get back to them. He pretended on at least three occasions to have lost the sound just so he did not need to continue a conversation.
Almost rescued by the interview with Don King (!!!). King was trying to explain that he did not understand the assumption that the black vote was Democrat vote. Dimbleby manfully suggested that whilst Don was a black man, perhaps he was not a representative one.
