Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

"Major media" is the head of the rotten fish.

It is my opinion that the retreads featured on the Sunday morning "news" have been given too much power by the lazy media. As long as such shills as Graham & McCain are given a platform week after week to spew their garbage, this country will stay stuck.

The rotten fish is the GOP controlled Congress, tossed together with any number of Blue Dog weak Dem's, and kept alive by the head of the fish, major media.

Will this ever change?

2. Iron Triangle

Our screwed up democracy will remain so unless one of the three legs of the corrupt iron triangle changes:

corrupt lobbyists

captured media

corporate bought government

They all reinforce each other. Hence, the Meet the McCain show.

4. I don't think they are lazy--I think it is purposeful

The shows are not news. The hosts are not journalists. They are propaganda. They lie, distort, omit, frame issues purposefully to sway the masses who are not really paying attention and who still believe in the free press .

That is how Bush survived and how the republicans remain the least bit viable.

5. I agree somewhat. I think this topic needs to be further discussed. It's true that hosts are not

journalists, but essentially "news readers."

The Sunday "news" shows are a major disappointment and lost their relevance long ago.

And no, it won't change so long as people keep tuning in.
