This week: Time slams public school teachers; what did their “bad apples” cover story get wrong? Plus we look at how ABC is framing the climate change debate among Republican politicians, and we note that election season pundits shouldn’t confuse the message they’re hearing from a minority of the population that votes with “the public.”
On this week’s episode: Pundits say now would be a great time to have a surgeon general–but that hasn’t happened, thanks to “Washington dysfunction.” Is that really what’s happening here? Plus Time magazine promotes Rand Paul, and says his critics–like MSNBC‘s Rachel Maddow–are unfairly tarnishing his record. And we’ll take a look at the new law in Pennsylvania that attempts to silence prisoners like Mumia Abu-Jamal. It’s a blatant assault on the First Amendment. So where’s the press? Watch:
David Brooks says the Middle East thinks Obama has a “manhood” problem.
