When did this happen?

I seem to remember C-Span's Washington Journal having three call-in lines, one for Democrats, another for Republicans, and a third for independents. This morning, though, there are three available lines labelled, 'Liberal', 'Conservative', and 'Moderate'.

Not a perfect way to carve up the ideological field, but better.

This morning's guest, by the way, is David Keating from the Club for Growth. Which organization deserves to win some kind of prize for branding. Smart of them not to go with the more literal He-Man Profit Makers Club moniker.

Addendum: Whoa! As soon as Club for Growth guy finished talking, the phone labels switched back to 'Republicans', 'Democrats' and 'Independents'. I think there's a branding story to tell there too.
