Dissing Democracy

Last night, the major networks dissed democracy. Faced with the choice of carrying a live presidential press conference (discussing important pocketbook issues such as Social Security and the skyrocketing price of gasoline) or airing their usual swill, they chose the latter. Some who actually deigned to broadcast the event pulled the plug when it bled into their precious primetime TV schedules. And, during the press conference, several reporters badgered the president when they didn’t like his answers. Mind you, these are the same people who complain that President Bush doesn’t hold enough press conferences. I wonder why?
