Dear Media: What's This Election About?
Okay, his CNN bio page leaves much to be desired, but CNN's provided a bunch of relevant videos. I'm going to check out his
"What am I actually saying?"Plus, why is it just a video of Obama talking? All I hear from him speeches, albeit, terrific speeches, that inspire hope, though not much confidence. I can get these videos on his website. Shouldn't CNN be saying "Theoretically, this plan works" or "Based on our research, this plan will fail"? Or maybe even "He barely even discussed a plan?" Something? How come on McCain's video, CNN narrates and comments on what he's saying but they just kind of let Barack go? You're CNN. You are CNN. You're not some hilariously absurd website that can get away with posting tasteless articles
In fairness to Darrow...I get that candidates are going to run slightly shady campaigns. I get that, because I'm not an idiot and that's just politics as usual. I can learn about the shadiness of their campaigns by watching their commercials. They're going to lie. It's your job to get the truth and to hold someone accountable when they lie, not just weakly point out 'Hey, that might possibly be construed as slightly perhaps being not so forward in the field of truth. Let's take a poll to see how the American people feel about possibly perhaps being lied to maybe.' Don't just point it out, do something about it. Have you ever been fucked violently in the ear? And then your friend comes in and, instead of helping, starts telling you what the guy's balls look like? That's you. You're that friend.
"Looks like the left one's a little bit lower than the right, what do you think, Diane?" "Oh, you're right! And it look, they were recently shaved. I bet that razor burn hurts." "I bet you're right, Diane."One more shot. Okay, I'll head on over to FoxNews. They've got to be trustworthy. They've got "News" right there in the title, so to suggest seriousness, and "Fox," so to suggest cleverness. Or perhaps that you can't trust them around chickens. Hey, FoxNews.com has clips of Sean Hannity's interview with Sarah Palin. Sean says that it's an uncensored interview, with
"Getting the nod was an experience?" Boy, that's some hard-hitting motherfucking shit, right there.You can ask her anything. You're wearing a suit. You clearly think you're some kind of journalist. You've got a responsibility, Hannity, and all you're doing is a) lobbing softballs and b) letting your obvious bias show in an unfair, twisted question that no one else would even consider asking. No one, and now you've put the idea in people's heads. Come on, Media. We're coming off some rough years as far as trust in our government goes. As a country, we're paying closer attention than ever. Do your job.
