Political and Media Punditry

I love this move pulled by several of the cable news media giants. They pick an unworthy news topic, let's call it the XYZ Affair. Then one of their cable news shows dissects why the 'media' insists on reporting this non news, and in doing so they give an extraordinarily detailed report on the XYZ affair. Somehow, we're supposed to by that this news media network is not part of the 'media', and their reporting on the XYZ affair is just an expose' on the other media networks. If you've ever watched any of the cable news channels, then you've seen this tactic in action. The sad part? Loyal followers of these channels buy the crap, and point the finger at the 'media', but not their beloved Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, etc...

We are sheep.
