Media Mania – the poem

Elaine Jackson
CNN viewer

Media mania America's agents of free speech
With up to date headlines within our reach
There was ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC
CNN with full coverage on your TV
America's race for President became quite a sensation
For two years it was the interest of the entire Nation
Around the clock the cameras were rolling
Keeping up with numbers of the polling
Wolf Blitzer was the all time favorite for me
The Situation Room was a great place to be
I give a hearty shout out to all the ladies too
You added a touch of special to what you do
I couldn't miss 360 with Anderson Cooper
Most assuredly I think he was super
Count on a twist of humor from Jeanne Moos
Dan Rather reigns at the helm of the pros
Ed Bradley, Peter Jennings and Tim
The media world is still missing them
Newspapers and magazines get honorable mention
If I didn't say your name it was not by intention
Political news coverage; the media did it all
My count of a winner is too close to call
It's been great tuning in with you each day
Thanks for allowing a poet to have her say

    Yep ... That clearly sums it up all right. Thanks Elaine This poem almost describes me to a 'T' in following the campaign 🙂

    I was constantly monitoring the internet and the CNN internet polls as well as listening to the radio and TV all at the same time ...... for months !!!!! My office was like a national communications center 🙂
