I say CBS won because it seemed to have the most up to the minute information. Walter Cronkite told me at 6:30 p.m. on the night of the DINER "Famous for-Good Food" 194 Summers Street presidential nominations that former Sen. Eugene McCarthy had withdrawn his name. At 7:15 p.m.--45 m i n u t e s later --David Brinkley over on NBC still . had McCarthy firmly in the race. Cronkite, it turned out, was correct. This is the way it went for most of the convention--CBS was running slightly ahead of the competition all the way. CBS had the most aggressive--and better known- floor men. Dan Rather and Mike Wallace plunged in where their counterparts on NBC and ABC perhaps feared to tread and it was easy to see when all three networks were" joS'!'"g fW position around some convention figure that CBS got preference. The CBS men-especially Mike Wallace-also had louder and more persistent voices and when everybody started shouting thus were able to override the opposition partly by SUNDAY SOLO sheer volume. The NBC watchers I know tell me John Chancellor clearly outdid David Brinkley. Brinkley, they say, didn't seem particularly to give a damn. Over on ABC, which didn't start its coverage until about two hours after the other two networks and which had to depend on a less elaborate setup, Harry Reasoner and Howard K. Smith did their usual impeccable job. What Reasoner and Smith missed in im- rneuifcey, they made up in commentary. It was Reasoner, for instance, who pointed out--after one of the ABC floor men had interviewed vice presidential candidate Endicott Peabody and Peabody had said he was certain he'd win that if that was a sample of Mr. YOU LAY OUT YOUR OWN POOL!

It is generally conceded by all three networks that gavel-to-gavel convention coverage is a losing proposition and that by 1976, everybody will have cut back sharply, using two hour summary programs each evening rather than trying to cover the convention from beginning to end. As far as the Charleston- Huntington stations are concerned, all of them picked exceedingly awkard times to break into the network coverage to present their own programs. WCHS and WH- ·TN switched awav. from the . networks on the night of the nomination to present their own 11 p.m. shows -- thus c l e v e r l y depriving their viewers of seeing the West Virginia delegation cast its vote. And WCHS, after the first night, delayed returning to the network for an hour in order to present "What's My Line?" and "Dragnet." In regard to the Roger Mudd-Jay Rockefeller flap, I agree that Mudd came on needlessly hostile. But it is also true that the previous night Mudd had been complaining about being "hustled" by some of the lesser candidates--particularly by supporters of Rep. Wilbur Mills--and had complained on the air that "everybody I see" wanted him to go interview somebody ~who really had nothing to say but just wanted to get on television. So when he got the signal to go talk to Rockefeller he evidently just blew his cool. It's no excuse but it is perhaps an explanation. Additionally, Mudd and all the rest of the floormen had been up until the very small hours of the morning every night of the convention, Mudd had also said that politician he had known for 10 years "had looked me straight in the eye and told me three straight lies" and everybody was tired and getting sort of short tempered.
