Patrick Kennedy hits the nail on the head

U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I., called out the media Wednesday for over covering the Eric Massa scandal, while forgetting the debate over Afghanistan.

“We’re talking about Eric Massa 24/7 on the TV. We’re talking about war and peace, $3 billion, a thousand lives, and no press? No press? You want know why the American public is fit? They’re fit because they’re not seeing their Congress do the work that they’re sent to do,“ Kennedy said.

Kennedy hits the nail on the head. While the Massa scandal is big and deserves coverage, the debate over pulling troops out of Afghanistan is bigger and deserves more coverage. Just as the media forgot to ask questions in the lead-up to Iraq, the media refocused their priorities to make people forget that we’re spending billions and wasting precious lives on Afghanistan.
