I woke up (late) this morning and turned on the TV. What happened since I went to bed?
At that moment the market was up 300 points. Talking heads were discussing it as if the past few days were fixed. Thanks for the insight. Ugh.
Next up the races for Republican and Democratic presidential nominees. I heard no issues discussed — none. The entire conversation (a long conversation by cable news standards) was about the horse race aspect.
Will email or Bernie hurt Hillary? Will Trump allow anyone else to be noticed?
There was no substance. Since when are presidential campaigns covered the way US covers the Kardashians?
We will elect the most powerful person in the world. He/she will have the world’s largest arsenal a their disposal. Their words will move markets and shift fortunes. That’s the lede and it’s buried.
Electing a president shouldn’t be reduced to a format Andy Cohen would feel comfortable in!
