GRITtv: What Happened to the “Gotcha Press”?

Tonight on GRITtv, The Nation’s Betsy Reed, the MediaChannel’s Danny Schechter and Air America’s Lionel consider the media’s coverage of Bush’s appeasement dig. Where are the “gotcha press” when you need them? And why such media silence about the Saudi’s rebuff of Bush’s oil request? Schechter says it wasn’t a rebuff at all. The dollar’s devaluators set things up this way for a reason. And, in a religion-soaked campaign, can secularists compete? We talk about that with the author of The Secular Conscience. And San Franciscans celebrate the California Supreme Court decision. All that and more, right here on GRITtv.
