Our dying mainstream media: Asking the wrong questions about the Blagojevich scandal, so you don't have to!
WWW--"How will this scandal affect Barack Obama?" asks the television news outlets over and over again, like a chorus in nearly perfect unison. Is that the real question we should be asking? It's one of them, but being the smart ass I am, I have to ask this:
How does the Blagojevich scandal affect President George W. Bush's and Vice President Richard Cheney's chances of being impeached and/or criminally prosecuted for greater crimes?
This is no less a "trick" or a "loaded question" than the one asking how Blagojevich's charges are going to affect President-elect Obama.
OK, got that? Great, have nice day, you've got some thinking to do. Cognitive dissonance hurts, I know, so be patient.
