Friedman continues his talk with Howard Kurtz and explains why he disagrees with Michele Bachmann about gas prices.

another coddling of the media by kurtz. freidman's use, and kurtz's agreement with the characterization, of "P-ESPN" to describe political reporting is not only correct, it is a prime example of media's collossal failure to inform, yet hardly recognizaible to the viewer thanks, again, to kurtz's usual soft-on-media demeanor. media's nearly universal failure to report the truth about the number and origins of our struggles today, which freidman was able to reduce to a very manageable number of relevant, understandable, factual and certainly reportable bullett points, is outrageous. that anyone in media DOESN'T understand that this is EXACTLY where we have been heading for 20 YEARS is outrageous. while kurtz seems thankfully vigilant in his distaste for he-said-she-said 'reporting' of opinion, his willingness to under-assail bad media acting may be part of the reason that bad acting is as prevelant in the media as it is. Missing 20 years of signs which could ONLY lead to ONE place is not a simple mistake or series of simple oversights, it is a collossal failure and should be more demonstrably treated as such by kurtz.
The only statement I've seen from Ron Paul's campaign manager, John Tate, is posted at dailypaul.com and states:
"- only ONE national Sunday media show did call and offer to have Dr. Paul on. After extending the invitation, they promptly PULLED the offer."
If this is an incorrect or misleading statement, perhaps Relaible Sources should insist Mr. Paul come on the show and set the story straight. If CNN/Reliable Sources is playing the same old-same old corporate-owned-media games, perhaps you should fade quiently into the background.
Still no love for Ron Paul....Isn't anyone covering the Paul Campaign?.....Too Old?? Why didn't you report
that he challenged all the other candidates to a 20 mile bike ride.......and in reply to Perry (treasonous) comment....
Paul said he make me look like a moderate. I have only called him a Counterfeiter.....
Ron Paul gets no love from the Media....Knock him all around the table, then say you asked him on the show but
he refused!!!!.........Duh....And it wasn't him who was complaining about the lack of coverage....He expects it,
rightly so.....These are unconventional times that the status quo has brought us to.....All the media can see is some
sort of horse race among all the acceptable candidates that they think are acceptable.....
You'll come around as the economy goes to crap and the dollar increasingly buys less....Finally you will all wake
up....One more thing, Ron Paul is the one who has been talking about the Federal Reserve for over 40 years,
and you don't even mention that when this poser Perry and Bachman bring it up.....DUH....
Also Ron Paul speaks to young people.....And this weekend he just won another straw poll in
NH among young Republicans, over 600 of them..........And while I am on the Friedman video site...........
Wasn't it him that said, America has to, let me see if I get this right. Pick some country and beat the crap out
of it, and then tell them to suck on this??......Just to get some respect!!!!!..........

Now more than ever, the press is a part of every story it covers. And CNN's "Reliable Sources" is one of television's only regular programs to examine how journalists do their jobs and how the media affect the stories they cover.
