Episode Summary

Current Gets Hip to the Latest in Social-Media
Riding the success of CSPAN’s convention hub which featured twitter feeds about both the DNC and RNC, Current.com is getting hip to the social media community with Hack the Debate. From their site: "Current is partnering with Twitter to give your feedback and voice a home — on TV as the various candidates debate. There will be four debates total, and we’ll be broadcasting them live on Current TV as well as live streaming them on Current.com." As one commenter mentioned on the website, Current.com is not using “hack” in the conventional sense. I guess in this context “hack” is just meant to bait politically active social network types into participating. Which they will, as long as Current lays off the “look at us, we’re so edgy!” vibe.
