Social Media Room

My friend Lamar White is doing a live interview for the social media news site NowThisElections. The interview is in the back corner of the social media room, which is sponsored by Facebook. It’s a large space with lovely mid-century modern-style furniture, beautiful young people, and an open bar. I am sitting in a firm but comfortable couch waiting for him to finish.

The media operations here are enormous. As we walked through the media access areas heading for the CNN Grill / Xfinity Live Pavilion, we saw Anderson Cooper. I got a laugh out of him when I told him, “Donna Brazile says she needs to find a new ‘boo’ now that she’s left CNN” (to serve as interim chair of the DNC).
