Question of the Week

Fareed Zakaria posed the following question to his audience at the end of his show today:

Who on the campaign trail do you think will benefit most from the current economic situation? The Democrats or Republicans?

Here is my response:

I wish the media would stop asking questions that pit the right against the left. Perhaps instead you could ask a question that gets at how Democrats and Republicans can work together to solve the economic crisis. Politics should not be about whether or not the left or the right will win, but rather how the American people will benefit the most from its leadership. The media is responsible to help shape public discourse, and I’d really like to see more journalists answer this call rather than the call of the networks’ bottom line.
