Balloon Juice commenter handsmile makes point #3,852,410,769 against the Ferengi media, in this instance that of TeaNN: too hot and bothered about getting hot and bothered to notice what’s really going on around them:
From 8:05-8:15am on CNN’s morning show, host Soleded O’Brien and three men each well-compensated for their political analysis, Ron Brownstein, Will Cain, and Roland Martin, all clucked and giggled about the interview: do people really care what an ex-spouse has to say; everyone knows about Newt’s “baggage”; comparisons between Newt and Jack Welch; what will women thiink? Not a peep (nor in the previous half-hour I watched) about Newt’s astonishing declaration that as President sworn to uphold the constitutional guarantee of the separation of powers, he would not be bound by Supreme Court decisions.

The American “news” machine is a global embarrassment, but so long as the check cashes…
