One of the things I find maddening is we have no one in the media who tries to hold our elected officials responsible. We allow them to say what they want, do what they want and just be irresponsible with no cares about the consequences of their statements or actions may have.
Even the so called "Hardball" with Chris Matthews doesn't always get to the meat and potatoes of the matter. Oh he likes to say he holds their feet to the fire, but he doesn't. And, David Gregory, on Meet the Press, well if you are on the R side, you get the puff ball, do you need a pillow interview, while if you are on the D side you might get a little tougher, do you think you were too hard on President Bush and do you regret saying he is the worst president ever. That's what he asked Sen. Reid last week. Not that I watched it, just read about it. I said when NBC named him as host I would never watch it again and I won't.
So, far I haven't seen anyone really force someone to answer the tough questions here in the US. But, I have hopes. Maybe one of these days, some reporter here will take lessons from the guy on this video. He is interviewing 2 of our congressmen. Watch this, it is a little long, but it is worth the watch, especially the last half of it. It is about the War in Gaza, the fact they are using weapons we (the USA) has supplied them, Israel I mean, and Dennis Kucinich, (D,OH) is not happy about that. I am not sure what Eliot Engel, (D,NY) is there for, but he gets grilled. It is worth the watch. He has no good answers and can't even argue well. Oh I wish this reporter worked for one of the MSM here and could have held Bushes feet to the fire.
