One of the things we constantly hear about the MSM is their willingness to ask the questions we can’t. Consider this clip of Chuck Todd:
“It’s my responsibility to ask the tough questions…I have unique access… I’d better use that access for a greater good”
Today there is a big press conference with Herman Cain addressing the now specific accusations against him. By an odd coincidence MSNBC’s Morning Joe had President Bill Clinton Scheduled for the 8:15 tine slot.
They had him on for 30 minutes and they talked economy, trade etc, yet not a person on that set asked him a question about the issue leading the news today, how he would suggest Cain deal with it and what lessons he learned from it.
That really says it all, Morning Joe and MSNBC have Bill Clinton, the single most famous political sexual harasser, a man who is still 15 years later the butt of jokes on the subject. (Even in the latest funny or die clip they play Clinton hitting on Michelle Obama)
Yet not a word, not a question, not a hint.
That’s not journalism, that’s Journo-list-ism.
