It's been apparent for a long time now that the big media in this country has been failing at their task. More and more they are just becoming mouthpieces of the right-wing monied interests. It's gotten to the point that the only reliable source for news is Jon Stewart on the Daily Show. He seems to be the only news organization that will take today's quote from jackass politician and compare it to a clip a year or two earlier saying the opposite thing. Big broadcasters, with all their resources, seem incapable of this bit of research.

This week they broadcast the debate between Obama and Hillary in Pennsylvania. I didn't watch it. I know who I'm voting for (Obama). It seems, however, that much of the time was wasted with stupid questions having no bearing on real Americans. Here's a link to a very good rant from a journalist in Philadelphia about how ABC totally failed the American people with their debate. It's worth reading to see how inept the mainstream media has become.
