Even though all-day live coverage of the health care debate replaced MSNBC’s crime docs yesterday, the programming grid that appeared on most cable/satellite systems did not change — something picked up on by this blogger:

So there’s Mitch McConnell explaining how this bill will make abortion mandatory (or whatever he’s saying…I’m not even sure he knows) and on my screen, it says I’m watching Conviction: I Put Fear in Your Life. And then there’s David Shuster talking with some Democratic Congressman and my screen tells me I’m watching Witness to Jonestown. And then there’s John Boehner talking and the info bar says I’m watching The Mind of Manson. The final vote may come during a time slot that’s supposed to be showing something called The Squeeze.
