John Kerry On Media Responsibility 

Sen. Kerry (D-MA; What's the matter with those people in Massachusetts?) reportedly said the following on MSNBC (you know, that demented network nobody watches):
And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it's exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.
It doesn't deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of what's real, of who's accountable, of who is not accountable, of who's real, who isn't, who's serious, who isn't?
Hmmm. The way I interpret that, if the media follow Kerry's advice, we won't be reading, hearing or seeing much of or about Sen. Kerry in the future.
