Profound BigMedia Fail

Real life still keeping me offline so just catching up. As always, outsourcing to Charlie Pierce's eviseration of Politico. Yes, read the rest that goes with this closer:
I think I can assure the kidz here that both the sequester and the government shutdown are having serious material effects on the lives of millions of people all around the country, regardless of what the polls say about their exhaustion with the rhetoric coming out of Washington. That they do not connect that rhetoric with the hardship in their own lives is a profound failure of journalism of which TBOTP is a perfect manifestation.
It's true Tiger Beat On The Potomac exemplifies the form, but they're tragically far from alone. The collective failure to inform is at the root of "what's wrong with everything." [graphic via]
