Do Not Listen …

… to the pundits. Do not listen to Joe Scarborough, or Wolf Blitzer, or Larry Elder, or Rush Limbaugh, or Rachel Maddow, or David Gregory, or Gene Robinson, or Sean Hannity, or any of other those losers on Fox News, or any of the other talking heads.

Just listen to the speech.

The television coverage of Barack Obama’s speech today has consisted of hour upon hour of pundit blather, peppered with a few selected soundbites from the speech itself. But, aside from the initial live airing, they haven’t seen fit to air the whole speech. The underlying message is twofold: First, their viewers aren’t smart enough or interested enough to make assessments of news events for themselves. Second, they don’t care that their viewers abandon them for YouTube in order to get the real story.
