Media coverage

It's painful.

I'm watching Chris Matthews (the new, improved version) on MSNBC kill some time by interviewing Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey, and following that with another slightly more pathetic interview with Rep. Bobby Rush of Illinois.

No new ground broken, no high pitched cackling or barking. Basically, an open floor for a Clinton supporter followed by an open floor for an Obama supporter. Followed by Keith Olbermann talking to an analyst (referring to McCain supporters as "McCaininites"--all kinds of new words coined tonight) who also hadn't said anything of value.

If this isn't an accidental endorsement of opposition to media consolidation, I don't know what is.
