Elizabeth Edwards has a good op-ed piece in the NY Times today.  She questions why most of us know the bowling score of Obama, and not more about the issues.  She points out how many candidates weren't given coverage on the issues initially, and so they are gone.  She points out how ridiculous all the press coverage Fred Thompson received and how that took away from what we needed to be looking at.  It is up to us to demand more strength and story on the issues.

News staff is being cut, not increased.   It is sad to see, but maybe those who are left will become accountable and do their job, and maybe we will buy and pay attention to the news that supports that.
