Thank You, Fareed Zakaria

June 14, 2010

I’m not saying one way or the other about the Obama administration’s approach, and neither – contrary to the whining his opinion has elicited – is Zakaria. It’s not a defense of Obama, it’s a critique of the media. I don’t know that it’s entirely fair as the other issues Zakaria mentions are often addressed, but the larger point remains, that the media in general is focusing wayyyyy to much on this emotional component.

    I am so grateful that somebody, ANYbody, has not only the sense to say what this commentator says but also the forum, the opportunity, to say it. Unfortunately, the masses don’t tune in to watch thoughtful commentary. They just watch the talking heads and the news bytes. News bites? The media are such whores, they really are.
