As much as I love politics, I also love to discuss the way the media reports a story that deals with our elected officials, and campaigns for public office. And there is plenty of media dissecting to do with the latest seven days, and the way the Republican National Convention was conducted, and then covered by the press. I for one want to know more about those who wish to be elected. Some feel that any questioning of the basically unknown Ms. Palin, for instance, is off limits, and as such, there is a reason to review what the press’ main job is in this nation.
Chris Matthews and Pat Buchanan tangled on this issue on MSNBC, The video here is worthy of your time. (BTW I hated the outdoor set that MSNBC had for both poltical conventions. Here is a clue….the action is going on INSIDE the convention hall!)
