My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Media Hits and Misses. . .

as in "hit pieces" and "misrepresentations"

Tonight's entry comes from the latter category.

Did anybody see this in their nightly newscast [courtesy The Kestrel]?

Iraq war protesters broke up a press conference by House Democrats on Wednesday with chants to bring American troops home from Iraq. . . .

Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., cut the press conference short when protests drowned out his voice through a dozen microphones set up to record his comments.

Yeah. I didn't either.

You weren't ACTUALLY expecting the media to cover something like this, were you? Had it come off as planned, the story would have been "Democrats set to eact bold agenda, put first woman in Speakership." They would never run a story that would have to be titled "Loonies who put them in power shout down incoming Democratic leadership."

The media would never--WILL never--show the American people the loopiness of the Democratic base. That task will fall to us in the 'sphere.
