This morning on Meet the Press, Chuck Todd was bemoaning the fact that trust in government is being eroded by birtherism and trutherism over the BLS labor statistics. Well Chuck, it is the GOP and a plot on their part to discredit government so that American voters will accept the GOP agenda. The media have no one else to blame but themselves for giving the GOP air time on the tube to propound their wild theories. The media should be debunking what the GOP are trying to sell. And Chuck, don’t treat elections as horse races; elections are serious business and should be treated that way. The latest poll numbers showing one candidate up and another down are largely meaningless and a waste of time. The media should be explaining the issues. If you do not, elections are reduced to personally contests, beauty pageants with the prize being political power over our lives for the next two or four years.
