No Actual Economists to Discuss Economy on Cable News

It’s really pretty amazing how disinterested many of the major news outlets seem to be in making sure their viewers have a grasp on the issues they’re discussing. I can see how they might think it’d be good for ratings to just have Eric Cantor on again to wax idiotic about the stimulus package and make the whole issue seem much simpler than it really is, but seriously guys?

If you weren’t already convinced that the vast majority of cable news is more about theater than it is journalism, then … well, you’ve got some catching up to do. But this should be pretty damn convincing.
