Loss of relevance

It's really interesting to watch the media and right wing figures dance together in the early days of this Sotomayor nomination.

The press seems more than happy to give the rightists their platform and promote/highlight everything they say, but there's also this very weird undercurrent of media eye rolling that's giving an air of ridiculousness and irrelevance to the rightwingers' "arguments" that the press is promoting.

Just a feeling.


  • Are you saying the media are giving the wingers a platform, but at the same time -- in commentary or whatnot -- undercutting their efficacy? I guess I'm not 100% sure what you mean by "weird undercurrent of media eye rolling."

  • That's what I'm saying.

    They're letting them talk, but not treating them seriously.

    That'll probably change as we move along, but, for now, it's creating these weird moments.
