Commenting on a Comment
"The President of the United States took the time to go over, in detail, his picks, and the reasons for them. It is news. If I have no other way to judge what's important, seeing the President on live TV from the Map Room of the White House means I need to pay attention. He might might be talking about the crisis in Libya, or the potential meltdown of the damaged reactors in Japan. If he shoves that aside for college basketball, well, it's time for March Madness. Don't blame the news outlets for following along."
The fact that the President took the time to go over his picks in detail is an issue all on its own. The problem that I have with this is that the bias of the media is as conspicuous as a pimple on the nose of a supermodel.
It's not what they DO report, it's what they AREN'T reporting. I don't care if it's a weekend or the middle of the week. If this had been a President from another party, any party, they would be screaming that he was wasting time and resources on nonsense and I would agree with them.
I most certainly DO blame the media for following along, especially when they give their golden boy a pass.
I expect better from our news sources. Fat chance I guess.
