TV One to Offer Extensive Obama Coverage

TV One, the cable network aimed at African-American viewers, will cover Barack Obama’s nominating convention but is ignoring John McCain’s.

The network is telecasting live, prime-time coverage of the Democratic convention in Denver Aug. 25-28, followed by “TV One Live: DNC Afterparty,” with political and social commentary from panelists. TV One is available in 43.7 million households, or about 40 percent of the nation’s TV homes.

Barack Obama (D-IL) waves goodbye after addressing the national convention of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) at the Washington Hilton July 8, 2008 in Washington, DC. Obama has been recently criticized for moving to the political center after calling for a slowing of withdrawal of troops from Iraq, supporting a proposed wiretap law and government funding of faith-based programs.
