I could not agree more with the writer of this article. why so much time spent on Weiner's, making a dick of himself while so many children are being harmed by wars, being displaced, doing without food, natural disasters and on and on, yet our media has our airtime dumbed down to Weiner's indiscretions.
Do the media really give us what we want/therefore what sells? or are we being purposely dumbed down to keep the real critical stories out of our reach. Whatever the answer, this trend is an insult to our inteligence.
