[See NewsBusters for more.] MSNBC on Thursday night offered a movie trailer-style promo, complete with dramatic music and exciting visuals to tout the “United” Democrats “embracing history.” This is quite the contrast to the opening video to last week’s Republican National Convention. Kicking off the primetime coverage of the Democratic convention, an announcer intoned, “The baton has been passed... a party stands united." Quick clips appeared of Barack Obama heralding, “There has never been a man or a woman more qualified than Hillary Clinton!” Bill Clinton cheered, “Hillary will make us stronger together.” As the music swelled, the announced extolled, “A nominee embraces history!... It’s the final night of the Democratic National Convention.”
