This Is a Good Question...

Some know Tucker Carlson for his really terrible and short lived stint on TV's Dancing With the Stars. The rest of us know him as the MSNBC pundit. Recently, he raised a very serious question about Dennis Kucinich. It really is a good point, Kucinich seems to be on the right side of some big issues, and willing to say some unpopular things.

If anything, this points out a very disturbing trend with the current state of the impending 2008 elections. I just seems like things are skewed in a bad direction. The point of elections is to let the people choose freely. Doesn't this create the responsibility on the part of news outlets to provide impartial coverage? I think this could largely be attributed to the move away from hard news and towards "entertainment". If the current situation is full of symptoms, maybe that is the root of the problem.
