News Web Sites Offer Live Super Tuesday Video Coverage

February 5, 2008 10:36 AM

I’m watching live coverage of Super Tuesday right now. And I’m not using my TV.

Shockers, I know. But still, this is pretty cool.

Right now I’m watching CNN’s coverage live online. That’s right—not just video clips, but the actual live coverage. You can go to www.cnn.com/live to see it, too.

The Wall Street Journal plans to offer live video online for the first time ever this evening as part of its extensive coverage of the elections today. Alan Murray, executive editor of www.WSJ.com, and Jerry Seib, Capital Journal columnist and assistant managing editor for the Wall Street Journal, will anchor the site’s hourlong video coverage beginning tonight at 8 p.m. EST. The video coverage will be free and available on the www.wsj.com home page.

ABC News Now is offering live video streaming coverage starting tonight at 7 pm. EST and continuing until at least 12:15 a.m. EST. ABC's Sam Donaldson and Laura Marquez will co-host the coverage. To watch the live streaming tonight, go to http://abcnews.go.com/politics.

In the meantime, you can watch real-time results here: http://abcnews.go.com/politics/elections/map?ref=ipb. Be sure to click on “interactive map.”
