Transition Time

Ever since the beginning of the announcements of who would be serving on the staff of our next President Barrack Obama, the news media has not been sure how to handle and analyze the appointments.

Seems like those on the left that were expecting a left leaning Executive Branch have some disappointments that there are some right-leaning members of his team.   And those on the right that predicted a total meltdown of our current combination of a representative democracy into a United Socialist States of America are looking for new ways to criticize the appointments.

Look my friends, it appears that the press is trying to predict the future and produce commentaries instead of report the news.  CNN, Fox and MSNBC and the broadcast networks have lost their focus.  Instead of reporting true news, or digging deeper (investigative reporting), we are left with fluff news and commentary.

See, the transition from one president to the next is not just on a governmental level, but also occurring as the national media is trying to fill their 24/7 schedules.

I admit, it was fun to listen to the pollsters and pudnits during the elction, but now these news organizations need to earn their credentials as news organizations, instead of talking heads.

As someone once said, opinions and butts,  everyone has one of each.
