All the more reason NOT to pay attention....

Megan McArdle thinks that the TV anchors have nothing to offer
The longer I watch politics--and I haven't, in two years--the more grating I find the television anchors. Their need for verbal filler to occupy air space (terrifying thought: what if the viewers are the ones who require this filler, to refocus their minds after all those glittering montages of automobiles and alchoholic beverages) is mind boggling--but even more amazing are the things they come up with to fill it.
