The Latest Media Tongue Bath

Love has no pride:

The thought that love has no pride is an old one. Indeed, it has become something of a cliché. Yet it is achieved the status of cliché by virtue of the truth in it.

CBS’s venerable 60 Minutes show brought us an example of the cliché in action over the weekend. 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft is smitten with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. He put his professional skills aside to do public relations for Obama and Clinton in their joint interview with him for the show.

A serious journalist might have tried to learn something on the issues of the day from them. Not Kroft. Lest there be any misunderstanding, Kroft thrust his tongue down their throats as fast as he could and kept it there for the duration.

Actually, it would be more accurate to say they have no shame.

I guess we have to elect Republicans if we want to get real journalism.

    That wasn’t where Kroft had his tongue. If Hillary or Obama farted, they would’ve ruptured Kroft’s eardrums.

    The problem of run-away inflation in the Weimar Republic, Zimbabwe and other places didn’t happen overnight, but when things reached the tipping point, they happened very quickly.

    I don’t find it comforting to know America is following the same policies that made Zimbabwe the international economic powerhouse it is today.
