« "Why Does Al Gore Hate the Press?" | Main | "Journalist" Says Gore & Carter Will Try to Push Hillary Out? »

April 13, 2008



Here's a nice piece from a high profile native of a small town in Pennsylvania:

A great section from this:

"Does Russert really believe he’s doing the nation a service for this parade of spin doctors talking about potential spins and the spin-offs from the words Obama used to state what everyone knows is true? Or is Russert merely in the business of selling TV airtime for a network that doesn’t give a hoot about its supposed commitment to the public interest but wants to up its ratings by pandering to the nation’s ongoing desire for gladiator entertainment instead of real talk about real problems."

I only wish I agreed with the last line, "The old politics, and the old media that feeds it, are irrelevant now." Unfortunately, they are still relevant. They need to be continually and loudly called out for the way they act, until they either clean it up or lose their relevance.

Damozel, as an aside, I appreciate how active you've been covering the REAL big story of this week, unlike the guardians of our public discourse in the MSM.
