American journalism strikes out again

Is journalism today atrociously incompetent or what? Which organ has bothered to demand an answer from Snowe or any other opponent of the public option WHY from a policy standpoint they oppose it -- as opposed to shutting their traps the second one of these people says it's a "non-starter" or other such horse race non-responsive response? "I'm against it because it won't win." "I'm against it because I'm against it." Oh, OK, thanks for coming on the show and explaining your position.

Do you have the slightest idea what kind of answer to these fundamental questions the opponents would provide? Might any reporter have the guts or integrity to observe that opposing the public option seems to be siding with insurance industry profits and exorbitant CEO salaries against the best interest of the American people in the availability of the least expensive insurance possible? And then asking them to justify such a stance with whatever stammering answer they can muster? How have we come this far with not a one of our highly educated, well-paid national reporters asking such questions?

Journalism lost its way when infotainment infected the media.
Jounalists have delusions of adequacy and are caught up in the celebrity syndrome of infotainment. They want their picture taken with Congress more than they want to hold its feet to the fire which is their job.
