You know I knew this would happen but you just called the media clubs and well.
Prepare to get club Alan in New York City -- this to say about my view the media -- any member who goes outside its conventional wisdom.
Which generally means left his right and right is well wrong.
-- -- you ever consider the possibility that the reason why the media doesn't watch you in its club is because you are raving lunatic.
Now and I actually never thought of that on a -- -- -- well face it -- you're just have said no and invites you to parties to this day.
Once a loser always a loser so long loser.
And so long Elaine Joyce CNN -- anyway.
-- in New Jersey writes I actually agree with you the media should welcome diverse views here's where I draw the line does not your views.
Well progress -- progress but in all seriousness I think my argument stands.
I can't stand the way the media club covers for example these budget arguments even if you -- media isn't biased.
Call them on their I don't know sameness.
Because what worries me covered this budget fight is my -- -- it's boring.
The media to tears of State's budget issues are not that excited.
Covering nonstop the trial of a woman charged with killing her boyfriend.
Then slitting its throat ear to ear and -- -- -- -- -- but it citing her cuts and -- man look at the ratings captivated.
Paul Ryan's cuts and not -- confident.
But Ryan's cuts matter the fact they're not really cuts at -- should matter more.
Because to hear the media the grudgingly does try to cover these issues I'll give them some credit.
It invariably goes through the blood and guts out there that simply nowhere -- -- -- for example.
Parroting the line that Paul Ryan is killing ground.
Or falling for the nonsense that sequestration is going to lead to bedlam at the airports.
-- eventually mr.
-- on our dinner plates it's scary stuff but it's wrong.
Let's remember what's really going on -- my friends if we only -- a little math here.
And we in the media simply did our jobs here no one no one is cutting everything.
The most drastic of all the programs considered still leaves us with trillions more in debt a decade from now it's true.
The government still growing no matter what we do now.
You don't hear that of course because it's just not flashy or exciting or bloody.
In an age where news is about going for the jugular in the case of a certain young woman's trial quite literally.
It doesn't sound exciting to say -- Paul Ryan is slowing the growth of government.
Now Paul Ryan pushing reading off -- cliff forcing millions to go on food stamps or just -- -- I started this when an amazing.
That is actually killing thousands of seniors and man -- man that is ratings -- so they don't that is wrong and -- now.
That my friends is the club.
Look I'm not saying there's anything wrong with a having a point of view but there is everything wrong not bringing up all those points of view.
Like it takes two parties to -- -- you just can't blame one leaving us in a tangle.
Or report that one side is stubborn and -- -- good deal because it opposes tax -- But the other is not when it jeopardizes the same deal because it opposes spending cuts.
-- -- you know little -- now I know I keep pounding this again and again a lot of you seem to think it gets old but the only reason my -- Dated -- is to remind everyone that it is through the prism of the media that we get a sense of what's going on.
My fear is what's not going.
What's being reported poorly.
-- where the media big bombs on to the line we don't have a problem.
At that very moment take it from the -- at this -- something stinks because when the media is in cahoots with the folks who say no problem.
At eight problem.
