Observations on politics, the media and life in Massachusetts and beyond from the left side of the road.

Mr. Grumpy returns

We're bracing for a Supreme Court coup on health care reform and Congress remains gridlocked on the time of day. Our Constitution is being battered by partisanship and gridlock.

And the media? Well, they are focused once again on what Bill Clinton said. And how much Mitt Romney and Barack Obama raised.

Is it any wonder the American electorate doesn't really understand what has happened in our business and financial communities or the impact of the European austerity crisis on our own economy?

Journalism vows to improve after every election cycle and falls into the same trap over and over again.

Whatever happened to the concept of giving people what they need?

Journalism will always follow the cheap, easy, exciting path to news coverage. Just watch the 5:00 to 6:00 PM news programs on any of our local (Boston) TV outlets. They will never do the prudent, intelligent thing.
