We could not agree more with this sentiment or have said it better.
John Nichols on the Thom Hartmann show today said this:
“…The most unsettling thing is what the Republican contest has said about our media. By and large, the debates have allowed the Republican candidates to say absurd things, to make wild, bizarre claims and for the most part to go unchallenged by journalists. And so we had a situation where most of our mainsream media for the last 6 – 8 months has really collaborated with a Republican infomercial that, as many of the Occupy folks have suggested, ought to be interrupted.”
