This was an interesting opening for an article on the Republican National Convention:

Youngsters interested in politics might be surprised to know there was once a time when either you watched the national party conventions on one of three TV networks, or you didn’t see them at all.

What era is he talking about? The 90’s?

When I was a kid you either watched the national party conventions or you didn’t watch TV at all. They were on all THREE channels.

What a waste. All THREE channels showing the exact same thing. Even on the night when they were supposed to show Charlie’s Angels.

And it was b-o-r-i-n-g.
