Blame the Media

The mainstream media are almost as contemptable as the insurance companies, as far as reporting the health care story. President Obama and the democrats have made many mistakes regarding the reform bill but nothing excuses the media for the way they have reported it.

It's all about ratings. On television, "news reporters" only requirement is to offer both sides of the pundits equal time. There is not an attempt to report truths or untruths. I think Walter Cronkite would be embarassed by his former colleages and should have spoken out against them before he died. From the beginning of the Clinton administration until now the media has sunk lower and lower, with Fox News leading the other media down the hole. They are as responsible for bringing down this country without its reporting of facts, as the republicans have been in spreading continuous lies. I don't know if there is any hope for our country. Sadly, I guess this is the reality of today's "news".
