Synopsis by Sarah Ing
Media saturation might have dampened enthusiasm for the electoral process, but the fact is that the 2000 Presidential race was one for the history books. For 36 days, the executive branch lacked a future leader as Florida became mired in details. Like all news agencies, CNN stepped up coverage in an attempt to explain the complicated and often tedious proceedings. CNN: Election 2000 -- 36 Days That Gripped the Nation is a wrap-up of the whole debacle featuring behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with reporters involved, including Julie Woodruff, Bernard Shaw and Larry King.
