Questions the Media Should Ask the President About the Fiscal Cliff but won’t.

Have you noticed how the debate around the fiscal cliff seems to be around why the Republicans won’t raise taxes and not about why the President and Harry Reid won’t cut spending?

The message in the #oldmedia is completely and totally controlled. The #oldmedia is for the most part an echo chamber. Everyone within the media establishment knows the questions which are OK to ask, which keep them in the good graces powers that be, and which questions are not OK. Don’t probe too deeply or ask any hard questions or one might find one’s White House credentials revoked, and with them invitations to all the good parties in Georgetown.

Other people have noticed this too.
