The “award”  (and not an Emmy) should be for getting political support, not for best lighting or best female lead. The speeches are worse at the Emmy Awards than at a political convention though.

    2-CBS Network news anchors continue to end each correspondent report with (correspondent name) “Thank You.” There’s a writer’s guild that oughta be screaming right now. Common sense oughta chime in too.
