  •  I've really enjoyed The Newsroom... (5+ / 0-)

    and I don't think it's any coincidence, despite media critics of the show, that all of a sudden news anchors are FINALLY calling out right-wing lies by Romney advocates. From Chris Matthews (whose son is in the cast) to Soledad O'Brien to Norah O'Donnell and a few others, I sense a sudden willingness to be something more than a stenographer, which I'm calling "The Newsroom" Effect. I only hope the moderators of the upcoming debates will commit to getting real answers from both candidates.

    •  That would be great (0+ / 0-)

      If there is indeed a "Newsroom Effect" like you described. I'm not that optimistic, but that would certainly be the preferred result: that the media improves.
