Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Faux "News" and Bing are conducting what they're modestly calling the "Largest Interactive State of the Union Experience in History":

Bing.com/Politics will keep people in the know from a vast number of news
sources and social feeds, including a live stream of the State of the Union
address, expert commentary, real-time social media sentiment tracking and
more, such as the following:

  o A live feed of President Obama's State of the Union address at
    Bing.com/politics, including commentary from FOX News Channel political
    experts. FoxNews.com will also feature additional analysis and commentary
    including multiple live video streams along with photo galleries from the
    event. Viewers can log on at: http://www.foxnews.com/....
  o The Bing Pulse online poll, which will feature updated results every few
    seconds throughout the speech. Unlike typical polls, Bing Pulse will allow
    people to self-identify as male or female, register their party
    affiliation, and join the conversation. It will feature a live count of
    the number of "pulses," or votes, along with a line graph of how users
    react to language and issues throughout the speech. Data will be split by
    gender and political affiliation.
  o Real-time news results using the Bing news selector that helps people
    navigate the news by filtering coverage from left-leaning and
    right-leaning sources.
  o Live sentiment analysis via Bing Beat, which will focus on real-time
    social sentiment across major issues, such as immigration, gun control and
    the fiscal cliff.
  o Original videos of former President Jimmy Carter and former House Speaker
    Newt Gingrich offering commentary on the State of the Union address.
  o A live feed of social conversations on Twitter so people can stay informed
    on what leading political pundits are saying about the speech.

The catch? You may have to watch the Faux "News" feed of the SOTU address, though I may try to access the site while watching on C-SPAN or MSNBC because for some twisted reason, I've always wanted to participate in a dial test.

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).
