Wes Boyd and Eli Pariser were on fresh air today talking about move on.org, and one of them (can't remember which) made an excellent point about the media's coverage of the presidential contest so far. He said something like, that his brother in-law, who is a total news junkie, called him up and was like, "Can you please tell me anything about where any of these Democratic candidates stand on the issues, cuz I watch cable news all day and all I know is who's up in some poll and who's wife is campaigning and whose isn't, and who's wearing a sweater." or something like that. But that brings up an excellent point-what happened to responsible media doing the job of actually reporting stuff we need, yea want to know?
