As long as we’re navel-gazing on the subject here this week, I should point out that political reporter Chris Cilizza at The Washington Post blogged yesterday that he does not vote, and asked his readers whether they thought that was the right decision for a reporter or not.
There are over 200 posts as of now. By my count, the vote got to 90 to 7 in favor of reporters voting, before the commenters forgot about the whole subject and started arguing about gun control and whether America is a “Christian nation.”
Somewhere in there, I suspect, is everything you need to know about the media and politics in America today. It’s just too late in the day for me to figure out what it is.
