The satellite news truck is a fairly ubiquitous fixture on the streets of DC. Pretty much all those “inside the beltway” stories that crowd the evening newscast involve one or more of them. In fact, it becomes easy to gauge the importance of the news being made by the number of sat vans outside a venue.
This one was a biggie — Hillary Clinton’s concession to Barack Obama a few weeks back. The trucks took up the entire block.
(The National Building Museum — which is behind the line of trucks — is one of my favorite places in DC. One of these days I’ll have to go be touristy and take some pictures for a future My DC post.)
