  •  As far as cable progams go, truth doesn't matter (1+ / 0-)

    It should be obvious that the facts are irrelevant to the producers of the cable programs such as Hardball. This was the lead story last night, and all that is required is that the proponents of the story are willing to appear. Then there is grist for the usual hangers-on to show up and spout their views one way or the other, more or less unencumbered by the facts, and with plenty of time to replay old news clips.

    These programs are no different from the pure entertainment side of the programming. There is an insatiable need for content to fill air time, and people like Wolfson know how to generate the content given the short shelf-life of some topic like this one.
