Media Fails in Democratic Election News


The economic crunch we are all feeling right now should highlight the disparity in media attention on the candidates. As I wrote in my post on economic stimulus politicians should be addressing the real human consequences of a recession. John Edwards does this with forceful resolve, with a passionate understanding of issues, and with the vigor of someone who believes in his message. Yet the media focuses on Obama and Clinton.

Here is a funny video that highlights what I am talking about.

Shawn Hannity sure looks like the fool that he generally is. Our media is failing the nation – the issues do not seem to be as important as the politics. I guess the politics are where the ratings are – and that tells us where the values of our media lies.
