In recent weeks, Sunday morning network news programs have virtually ignored economic issues, instead devoting hours of coverage to the September attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya; improper targeting of conservative nonprofits by the Internal Revenue Service; controversial federal investigations of national security leaks; and new revelations about National Security Agency surveillance programs.

1. I'm so glad the economy is fixed. Just last week they told us to eat our feet. Whew!

2. Proving yet again the total irrelevance of the Sunday gasbags

Were they at all relevant, they'd have noticed that the state of the economy is the big scandal out there, how 99% of the American people have been systematically robbed of the fruits of their labor.

Best thing to do about those shows is sleep in.
