ABC News Is Insipid and Elitist

This post is a short and angry rant. ABC News debate moderators Charles Gibson and George Stephanopolous were a disgrace this evening. Remember when Obama/Clinton debated health care for fifteen minutes prior to their contests in Ohio and Texas? There wasn't a single question about health care this evening. Over forty minutes had to pass before Iraq and Afghanistan were even mentioned. And of course not a single question about the Bush Administration's latest disgrace on torture. Nor did most of the debate address specifics about our collapsing economy such as the housing crisis, credit crunch, globalization and free trade. Overall, this evening's debate was a display of insipid futility. Apparently, ABC News believes a vacuous tabloid oriented debate is what voters really want. I'm disgusted and have nothing else to say.

The slant was so blatant that criticism has come in from all corners. While America fights a war that is killing our soldiers and emptying our treasury, while our economy implodes under the twin boulders of house depreciation and spiraling inflation, while nearly 50 million of us cannot go to the doctor, George and Charles wanted to talk about a flag lapel pin.

I never watch the Chimpromised MSM as a rule, but that "performance" made me swear off even debates forever.
