Public Perception
Steve Benen - who seems to be guest-posting for every blogger this weekend - writes today at TPM about something that always drives me crazy. It's one thing for the general public to have a faulty impression over which party is to blame for congressional inaction. It's quite another for media members to report on this phenomenon without noting or caring about the role they play in sending out this misinformation. How about reporting on whether or not the public perception is *true* once in a while, instead of side-stepping the journalist's obligation to, you know, actually inform the public?
