Meet the Press goes Full Chipotle

LOL. Ok. I turned off Meet the Press. Not watching it.

Watch “the Daily Show” clip making fun of our press, as that is faaar more worth your time than this crap.

It’s really a testament to the sorry state of the GOP and our corporate media when *all* of the GOP panel members bring up the “Chipotle Video” (close circuit video of Hillary Clinton ordering a burrito without fanfare) as an example of how Clinton is out of touch and old and boring.

Nothing about policy, or experience or reality…just spinning a close circuit video. The political punditry TV class is like a weird papparazzi, that just takes pictures of itself taking pictures of others.

I noted this during the latest season of “House of Cards” where all the “journalists” in Washington were playing themselves playing themselves on TV. I think, for a lot of them, the job is scripted, and all about acting out said script.

The Press is not supposed to be like that. When we “Meet” them, as it were, what we are seeing is what they are now, which is a caricature of what the job should be.

I know, I know, it’s a constant Sunday morning lament. But it’s a really sorry state of affairs, and there’s little wonder as to why folks lose interest so quickly in sorting through it all.
