Legacy Broadcast

Posted by mattieliz on January 20, 2009

In class today, a group of students and I were assigned to focus on the inauguration through legacy broadcast. This means to pay attention to the live feeds on CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX, MSNBC, etc. I focused mostly on CNN.com. It was interesting to watch the live feed, because CNN was going through Facebook so people (especially the youth of America) could comment as they were watching this while being at work or school, such as myself. I thought this was a really good idea for CNN to do, because they know they will bring in more of a broader audience that way. I also checked out ABC and they did a decent job covering this historic day as well. It seems like they covered everything, including interviewing the reactions to the millions of people who came to Washington D.C. to experience this historical day.

However, I found most of these networks to be slightly vague on what they were reporting. For example, they weren’t really talking about anything specific but more or less were just talking about how much of a historical day it was. I also noticed that all of these networks  went into great detail about when Barack Obama was being sworn in as America’s 44th president but messed up the words. It later turned out that the cheif justice was the one who messed up the words of the oath. Overall, it seems like all of these networks covered the same things of the inauguration and there was nothing different about the other networks.
