Make That 8 p.m.

posted by on April 16 at 14:46 PM

I said earlier that tonight’s Democratic debate (and my live-Slogging of it) would begin at 5 p.m. PST. But commenters and my intern inform me that the debate, which begins at 8 p.m. EST, will not be aired in real time here on the West Coast. Instead it will be taped and shown here at 8 p.m. PST on ABC.

In further annoyance—can this really be true?—the debate won’t be live-streamed online. So there’s no way around this tape delay, I guess.

Honestly, I would much rather live-blog this debate beginning at 5 p.m. PST, so if I can find a way around the delay I’ll be here then. Otherwise, see you at 8 PST.

KOMO Radio says they are streaming audio of the debate on their website beginning at 6pm PST.

Tape delay makes no sense in the modern world.

So, 9pm Pacific Daylight Saving Time? What's with the PST?
