"Countdown" Goes Prime Time


by Steve

Sure, the media is doing White House stenography once again to sell us another 2-3 Friedman units for the surge under a false Petraeus/Crocker cover. And yes, the media is interpreting what some have said is a triangulated speech by Clinton to claim she now supports staying in Iraq, only to see Obama speak more clearly to the VFW today.

But every now and then, the media does something worth praise. NBC is trying Keith out this Sunday night in prime time before Sunday Night Football, because their senior management has noticed his ratings, and now wonders if the Big Network can make money with a prime time center-left political news and snarkfest.
