Suxism, our new term for the worst habits of local TV news stations both here and across the country, is slithering into print journalism more and more often.
Cartoonist/blogger Neal Obermeyer of Lincoln points out an AP story about Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning's claims that the health care reform measure passed on Sunday is unconstitutional.
In a post entitled, "Your Liberal Media at Work," Obermeyer names those quoted in the story—four Republicans (or their spokespersons), all of whom oppose reform—and then adds, "You know who wasn’t interviewed for a story on the constitutionality of the healthcare bill? An expert on constitutional law."
Such is life in the "Heartland."
