In summarizing the Democratic Convention, Jeff Jarvis delivered one of the the best one liners I have seen:

Nothing is going to happen there. It’s not news when nothing happens.

Words of wisdom by someone who knows.
Yet it will take 15,000 reporters and Lord knows how many news articles to report a done deal we already know about.
Of course, something might happen.
But, despite the concentration camps (with more crushing of dissent), it’s not yet 1968….
Instead of mob rule, so far it’s more like mob drool; the most entertaining thing I’ve read about was a “doddering pit bull.” (Ouch!)
Better doddering than rabid, I suppose.
UPDATE: Drudge is calling the convention “the big yawn”:

THE BIG YAWN: NETWORKS IN RATINGS FREEFALL AT CONVENTION, OPENING NIGHT ALL-TIME LOW: ABCNEWS JENNINGS WITH 3.5 RATING/5 SHARE [DOWN FROM 4.5/8 IN 2000]; NBCNEWS BROKAW 3.3/5 [2000:4.8/9]; CBS DAN RATHER 3.2/5 [2000:3.8/7… TRAIL ALL OTHER PRIME-TIME MONDAY PROGRAMMING [CBS:MIAMI RERUN ON CBS PULLS 8.6 RATING/13 SHARE]… DEVELOPING…

At least no one is talking about “Blogbuster ratings.”
UPDATE: M0ORE here.
