This Week's Daily Banter Mail Bag

The Mail Bag is posted. As always, Chez, Ben and I answer your questions about politics and the media.

The questions for this week:

Would you agree that the media establishment should be forced to co-sign a blanket apology to their viewers, readers, listeners, for having withstood the relentless promotion and coddling of the Republican primary process (dozens of debates, countless million$ spent, shameful disregard for truth) and the obvious attempt to legitimize these otherwise ridiculously divisive candidates in the eyes of the American public?

Hi Guys, What do you think is up with Jon Stewart? He's been trying too hard for a while now to push the inane both sides are equally bad meme, but his show has become nearly unwatchable. Doing a "comedy" bit with O'Reilly last night? Sure, pan the apparent ridiculousness of the GSA boondoggle, but cozy up with that vile spewer of hate? Then run a segment on how stupid the President's email campaign can be? Sure the begging can get tiring. So hit unsubscribe and go back to covering the right-wing war on women and actual freedoms. And the night before he's arguing to a former Bushco lawyer that President Obama caved on campaign promises and the fucking bush guy is defending the President.

Hi guys, loving the mailbag! Wanted to hear your thoughts on Santorum's exit from the race. I know the guy is a nut, but he was at least an honest nut. Mitt Romney on the other hand is a complete fraud and basically bought the election. I'm strangely sad Santorum lost.
