Here’s a question. Why is it headline news that Sam Alito’s wife left the hearing room in tears earlier this week. The only thing that is relevant hear is the judge’s views on the law and the constitution. This man is extremely dangerous and has no business on any court in this country, much less the supreme court. He is in complete agreement with the idea of a royal presidency. He would reenforce all the outrageous policies of the Bush administration. But what does the media focus on? His wife leaving the room in tears. This is exactly why the main stream media is now completely irrelevant and the sooner that people begin ignoring it and find new sources of “real” news, like blogs, the better off this country will be.
