Media Moon America

There was a town hall on health care last night. I didn't see it, but from what I have heard, Obama handled the topic well and ABC (and their sponsors, and especially their commentators) made asses of themselves (AGAIN).

Sawyer's main contribution was to introduce her own uninformed biases/opinions in framing issues and introducing questioners. Gibson's primary role was to reveal his own misconceptions and then literally read talking points from a Republican letter -- an obvious ransom extracted after days of Republican whining about giving the President air time on a critical public issue.
