Following the US finansial problems OR elections

Lately following the US elections (and lately the finance collapse) is an interesting thing, I have been watching the following (in the order of importance):

  1. NBC Nightly News

  2. NBC Meet the Press

  3. NBC Countdown

  4. The Daily Show/The Colbert Report

Additionally, if you watch it in this order, the fear and maybe even panic that sets in watching the news is slightly relived by the common sense and a bit of humor.

And to the people that say that that the above is very anti-Republican leaning - I admit, it is a bit, but when Democrats fail, they cover it as well. It just does not happen as much lately. I mean, Republicans manage to contradict themselves inside one sentence, entertainment TV loves that and Democrats actually have hard time competing for air time. A Democrat gets an oral relief from his secretary? A bunch Republicans are selling government oil-rich lands for sex! Beat that! Poor Democrats :D
