    The Democratic Party has taken on the mantra of the far left Occupy movement. So why haven't your guests taken on the fact that the press has refused to take on the radicalism of Democrats? It seems the media has utterly failed to hold Democrats and this President accountable. The guest is correct -- what we have seen from the media since Obama took over has been quite embarrassing. The fawning over this guy is ridiculous.
    The media has rarely pointed out the influence of the Occupy movement on Democrats. This class warfare and envy that Occupy espouses is today's Democratic Party.

    Extremism. Advocating paying our bills is now extremism. Advocating for living within our means is extremism. Wow have we come a long way in 237 years. But if I say it's in teh wrong direction from those principles I guess now I'm advocating for extremism....

    With a President who claims to have taught Constitutional law but treats the Judiciary and Legislative branches with disdain and disrespect, who appointed unelected Czars to circumvent the advice and consent of the Senate and to intimidate career public servants; and with a Democratic Congress passing laws so we can learn what’s in them afterwards; and now a Democrat Senate Majority Leader tabling every law passed by the House so they are never brought up for a vote; and with no budget for more than 3 years and record annual deficits, Orenstein and Mann believe our most pressing problem is a failure by the media to expose the unsportsmanlike conduct of a Republican Party intent on bringing spending under control. These two think-tank residents must have been observing the last 4 years from the other end of a very long tunnel. Else, they might have written about these things and the threat to our freedoms that they portend, about what happens when a country is forced into bankruptcy, public pensions and social security overdrawn, and little old ladies are left holding worthless government bonds while their grandchildren are left owing a debt they can never repay - and the consequences these events will have on living standards, security and safety, and shortages for food and routine life supporting materials. Instead, basic economics and high school mathematics apparently present difficulties for these think-tankers as they conclude what the country needs to hear about is a failure by the media to expose Republicans who won’t cooperate with those leading us down the same path as Greece and Italy. Your questions and observations tried to bring balance into the discussion, Howard, but perhaps a more targeted question to these myopic thinkers might have been: “is the sky is blue in your tank?”.

    "False Equivalency" only serve to diminish the credibility of the Press and it take a direct hit on their moral authority to make judgment of right and wrong. Remove the Press from a Leadership role to the roll of a bystander that only reports without responsibility or care to reader or viewer...SAD
