Think of today's news organizations as insatiable beasts whose ravenous appetites constantly need more and more news bites, and more analysis about those news bites.

Interesting article. Disingenuous but interesting all the same. I wonder how much of the deficit is the result of the ongoing war in Afghanistan and until recently Iraq? Or how much is it due to the continuation of President Bush's tax cuts? I wonder if the increase in people relying on welfare has anything to do with the recession. You remember the recession don't you? The one that started a full year before President Obama even took office. I wonder if the stubbornly high unemployment rate might be lower if the republicans in Congress had not made outrageous demands to pass any measures the president proposed to boost the economy. And then when their demands were met refused to pass them anyway.
