CQ: Dem convention "on the brink of a media disaster"

Craig Crawford at CQ has the story:

The Democratic convention now teeters on the brink of a media disaster thanks to real news that threatens to distract reporters from the scripted show.And wouldn’t you know, it’s all about the Clintons. The trouble with the news-free nature of modern conventions is how anything unplanned can instantly get of hand with thousands of reporters in town vying for every morsel of something different.

The word on the street is total meltdown. The Clintons and their advisors aren’t even staying for the final speech. Bill Clinton is openly whining about his speaking assignment.

And that’s before Joe Biden stuffs most of his leg in his mouth.
