free press stupidity

Lou Dobbs is incompetent. Interviewing Jerry Falwell today, he mentioned the fact that overall, the blue states have a better track record when it comes to marriage, fidelity, and most of the "values" issues that seem to have affected the recent elections. After giving a laundry list of ways that the castigated-as-liberals blue states outperformed the morally and ethically vaunted red states, he timidly asked Falwell, "how do you rationalize that?" In other words, "why don't you just give me your talking points now, and you needn't worry about backing up your answer with any facts," which is exactly what Falwell proceeded to do, unobstructed and unrebutted.

Having a "free press" without having an intelligent press is utterly worthless.
