LarryK,

if you insist on only watching FOX News, of course everyone will say Kerry did badly. But in fact most correspondents on most outlets thought he did a superb job.

Check out what the Associated Press reports:

July 30, 2004 | NEW YORK (AP) -- Television commentators gushed in their first response to John Kerry's nomination acceptance speech, while warning the address will be parsed in the weeks ahead for what wasn't said.

"This is the best speech I have ever heard John Kerry ever make," CBS analyst Bob Schieffer said as balloons fluttered down on the Democratic National Convention's closing celebration Thursday night.

Over on ABC, political director Mark Halperin provided an echo: "The best speech I've ever seen John Kerry deliver by a mile."

"There was no Bush bashing in this speech tonight," NBC anchor Tom Brokaw said of Kerry's performance at Boston's FleetCenter, "but lots of lines that brought the crowd to its feet, especially when he talked about the defense secretary and the attorney general."


You can find the rest; just do a google search on the AP's headline:

Television commentators wowed by Kerry

Sorry, Larry K, as usual you're out of touch!

As for GUEST, I wonder how they calculate those "network ratings?" Do they include C-Span, etc?
