Born at the Crest of the Empire

Yeah. That's what I think....

Riffing off the 2010 post above, I was thinking how funny the entire exercise of TV punditry is. From the cable network perspective, their function is primarily to reflect back what one segment of the audience wants to believe giving those viewers a sense of identity with the television program.

Reinforcing someone's belief, and making them feel smarter is probably a pretty good way to get the people who watch cable news (who want to be oh so informed) to keep tuned in.
