Response to Nancy Waterman (Original post)

7. I blame the media mostly

They have to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into covering anything we're talking about. Anytime a right-winger/Republican so much as farts and/or unleashes a torrent of verbal diarrhea, they're right there to "cover" it ad nauseum. I don't know if it's because they support the right-wing ideology or if their stuff just has a "train wreck" appeal to it or what but clearly somebody at the top seems to think that coverage of right-wing/Republican issues and their "manufactroversies" are likely to generate higher ratings, publicity.
