Thanks to CSPAN ! : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Hats off to CSPAN for showing all this Y2k stuff this week.

You can argue that alot of it seems to be spinning the "dont worry be happy" view but thats not CSPANs fault. CSPANs job is to just bring the news, not make it.

Right now they are showing the Paul Albergo thing again so they are getting ALOT of people nationwide to at least know about Y2k.

One very important thing, a heck of alot of the callers dont buy the governments spin and are worried. I feel this series of Y2k shows on CSPAN are going to wake up alot of people. What that wake up means in the end is uncertain but it will wake them up.

You're right on target here, c-spaner. I have enjoyed watching what I've been able to watch because it goes beyond the talking heads rendering their same old lines and gets right to the core: people involved with the problem. 'Don't worry be happy' is much more pallatible (pardon the possible spelling error) when it comes from someone who is actually getting his/her hands dirty, and not someone who has a book deal or speaking engagement...or conversely, must worry about negative publicity.

While watching "Washington Journal", it occurred to me that their use of the phone lines for "Republican", "Democrat", and "Other/Independent" is quite meaningless with regard to Y2K. The whole political paradigm falls apart when discussing a potential disaster.
