This really pissed me off. As Jon Stewart pointed out, the mainstream media isn’t interested in news, they are only interested in sensation and scandal. Want proof?
Nancy Pelosi calls a press conference to talk about jobs and the economy, but it coincidentally gets scheduled the day that Anthony Weiner is going to announce his resignation. The major networks jump on it with breathless excitement, assuming that Pelosi (who had previously called for Weiner to resign) will change the subject to talk about the scandal. When Pelosi announces that she won’t be talking about Weiner, they immediately and shamelessly cut away. Watch it:
Survey after survey shows that the biggest issues that the voters care about are the economy and jobs, and yet the mainstream media doesn’t want you to hear what Pelosi has to say about that. All they want you to hear about the Democrats are two words: “sex” and “scandal”. This isn’t news, it’s gossip.
