I was listening to Wisconsin Public Radio today and aside from a little bit about the Olympics, all they talked about was the Democratic convention, which was no surprise. Oddly, they didn't say anything . "Hillary did what she had to do..." or "Mark Warner's speech was boring," and "all the speeches were boring..." "Hillary said this..." "what will Bill Clinton say tonight..." "did Hillary do enough..." "Joe Biden will probably liven things up...". They went on and on about how uninspiring all the speeches were. Not once did they even mention Dennis Kucinich, who I though made a great speech. Not once. Par for the course for the stupid media, I guess. They decide who we get to listen to. They decide for us that the convention was uninspiring without letting us hear the most inspiring speech so far. They decide for us who is a valid candidate and who is an also-ran. Uff da.
You've probably already seen this or posted it on your own blog, but if you were a person who got all your news from television, radio or the newspaper, (which clearly is not the case) you might not even be aware that Kucinich exists. He says it all in this speech, and I enjoyed watching him hop around. Too bad he's not the nominee, but I guess the media decided for us that he wasn't an option before the primaries even started.
