    media.  The Chuck Todd's of the world are all puffed up with their self image as the arbiters of the public's right to know, but in reality, they act as the referees of the old style of roller derby, always inventing penalties so the team that is twenty points behind can catch up immediately so there is a one point finish and the crowd thinks that the match was really close.  

    Unfortunately for Chuck, the public can usually tell when the outrage is faked (which is most of the time) and they tune out.  This manufactured controversy is generally why less and less people are voting since they think that the whole thing is something of a made-up scripted reality TV show.  In a sense, Chuck Todd is a threat to democracy by the way that he trivializes truly important issues.

      struggle is like my beagle opining about the quality of the dinner I just cooked her when she gladly gobbles up duck and deer scat.

      Todd just rushes toward whatever seems most juicy at the time...

      Fortunately, I'm quite confident that most hardworking American women look at the very smug and wealthy Todd happily reporting such ridiculousness and evaluate him on the same basis as I do when my dear little beagle rolls in terrible smelling stuff: "no! Chuck! Ack! Leave it!"

        is that most hardworking American women aren't looking at that clown in the first place.  ;-P

        When the truth is only a matter of opinion, advantage goes to the liars.
