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:

Something struck me last night, as Ari Melber mentioned Joe Biden's speech at NN. Melber referred to "a liberal convention", but not by name. The shot of Biden included a portion of the backdrop that clipped the logo and "netrootsnation.org". If you didn't already know the full name, you might not figure it out from the way the logo was clipped by the camera angle.

I let it go by at the time.

Just now, Rev. Al showed a clip of Elizabeth Warren's speech at NN. Again, she was shown with the clipped logo. Then a different camera angle came up, which showed Warren against a different angle of the backdrop, with no logo visible whatsover. Rev. Al didn't mention where she was speaking, at all.

Am I seeing things, or is MSNBC deliberately masking what's going on in Detroit? Make no doubt, when they cover a Republican at one of their conventions, you know exactly where they are, visibly and by spoken words.

As I type this, Rev. Al is once again mentioning Detroit, in terms of the water protest. And limiting his remarks to exactly and only that topic.

Did Markos really piss off Phil Griffin that badly all those years ago?
