more stuff to report

The HBO folks have pumped up the name of their inaugural special. It's now called:
WE ARE ONE: THE OBAMA: INAUGURAL CELEBRATION AT THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL
It airs Sunday, Jan. 18 at 6pm on HBO.
Unlike years past, several other cable networks are bringing their cameras to the inauguration: Nickelodean is bringing cub reporters to the scene as is MTV and other typically entertainment-centric sights.
Online, CBS will steam the actual inauguration live with Katie Couric and the CBS team on hand to offer comments and whatnot during the event. Let's hope they keep the chatter down to a minimum. There's nothing worse than someone telling you everything you're seeing, when you're looking right at it.
