    I think Robert Reich nails it here. It’s taken billions of dollars and over 40 years to create and it’s dismal.

    TV news is nothing but trash marketed for entertainment value and advertising revenue.
    It doesn’t surprise me that they missed another big story that matters very much to Americans.

    And besides…there is too much Sochi nonsense to cover stuff that might actually be useful to people back home.

    There’s no way to spin it (a) as a narrative for the 2014 midterms, (b) as a narrative for the 2016 presidential election, or (c) as a both sides! story. Therefore, it’s not a real story.

    Unless it’s Justin Bieber, the Kardashians or some other stupid shit, the tv “news” doesn’t care.

    But, but, but… the lamesterm media. It’s so drenched in liberal bias, it’s not funny. Wake up, sheeple!!!
