    Obama inauguration to air in theaters

    Obama inauguration to air in theaters

    Obama inauguration to air in theaters


    NEW YORK -- President-elect Barack Obama is on his way to the big screen, thanks to a deal between MSNBC and Screenvision that will put the news channel's inaugural coverage in 27 theaters around the country.

    Free tickets are being handed out via MSNBC.com to see the inauguration and parade from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. ET at the 27 theaters run by 11 exhibitor partners in 21 markets. Midday Tuesday isn't necessarily a big movie time, so it helps to fill the theater -- and boost popcorn and soda sales -- at a time when it's not usually busy.



    Ok now this is getting ridiculous. Here we have MSNBC giving out FREE tickets so people can go to theaters to see the inauguration. I guess MSNBC has given up on journalism and is now not shy about being the mouthpice of the Obama presidency....


    Imagine if FOX news did this......

    Meh I don't see what's wrong with this. They'll probably get some sweet advertising deals for it, and at least those people aren't going to DC. It'd be a nice alternative to having such a huge inauguration, if only that's what it was.

    Whether you are a fan of Obama or not, this is an historic inauguration. There are tons of people across the US who wish they could be there, so they are making it a little more special for those people who can't. What's your beef with MSNBC? It's not like they are charging people money for tickets. Sure, they are cashing in on it because it gets their name out there. I don't really see what the big deal is.

    And no, I wouldn't think it was a big deal if Fox News did it. Though, with Bush I don't think there were a bunch of people dying to see it because it wasn't as historic.

    I totally agree with bolded part.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I was planning on having a threesome to celebrate this historic event in American history, but my wife said no. I called her a racist.

    So you believe that this is what a news organization is for?


    What's your beef with MSNBC?

    It's giddyness and tingly sensations it gets for Obama.


    It's not like they are charging people money for tickets.
    I would have more respect for them if they did. Now they are simply being the mouth piece for the obama presidency.


    Sure, they are cashing in on it because it gets their name out there.
    Not to sure about that.

    I don't really see what the big deal is.

    And no, I wouldn't think it was a big deal if Fox News did it. Though, with Bush I don't think there were a bunch of people dying to see it because it wasn't as historic.


    Its not a big deal other than to counter the anti-Fox crowd.

    Well, a news organization is supposed to document and report news, so yeah, this is what a news organization is for.

    Its not a big deal other than to counter the anti-Fox crowd.
    Well, considering the conservative bias of Fox, it would be more of a big deal for Fox to do something like this than MSNBC, obviously. I'm sure you'd be as surprised as me if Fox did something like this for this inauguration. We both know it won't happen, and we both know why.

    I wonder if they'll show it in 3-D IMAX.

    You mean instead of showing it on the tv like they always have, they need to go back to the news reels of old for this special event?

    Please.

    Wait, so you first say, this is msnbc reporting the news, then you bash fox for not doing this because of thier bias?

    Since when have news organizations had an agenda of honesty and integrity? Seriously, what country have you been living in? This is a capitalist society and everyone is an opportunist. They are most likely doing it to get some free advertising. I suspect any news organization would have done the same if given the opportunity. Not everything is purely politically motivated.

    It's giddyness and tingly sensations it gets for Obama.
    That may be what you see. What I see is a news organization taking part in an historic event in an effort to get some free advertising.

    I would have more respect for them if they did. Now they are simply being the mouth piece for the obama presidency.
    Why? Because they are offering people who are unable to attend the inauguration a chance to see it on the big screen for free? Yes, those horrible bastards!

    Not to sure about that.
    Well, of course you won't see it that way because you think this weird notion that people being excited about an historic inauguration means that they are swooning and drooling over the guy himself like he's the messiah. Yeah, that material got old during election season. It's time to get some new stuff. The guy won. Deal with it.

    Its not a big deal other than to counter the anti-Fox crowd.
    And I knew that's precisely what you were going for.
