Last night Mitt Romney addressed the Republican National Convention. In the hours leading up to his speech however, he was backstage, watching TV news coverage. Which network was Romney watching?

Yes, Romney watched the RNC not on Fox News, CNN or PBS, but rather that old standby C-SPAN.
The fact is, if you wanted to only watch the speeches, and didn’t want to have commercials and bloviating political analysts constantly interrupting the action, C-SPAN was pretty much the only choice.
