(Studio) Commentator notes viewer criticism of convention coverage by those wanting coverage of podium only and no floor interviews. Commentator says delegates don't even watch podium that much, and with good reason. Only celebrities (Mrs. Nixon, Barry Goldwater, John Ehrlichman, etc.) who come in for 1 hour at a time, watch speakers intently. They are there only to be interviewed.
