Tom Brokaw on Nader’s low numbers

re: Diane Rehm October 16, 2008

Tom Brokaw says that there is no need to cover Ralph Nader, because Nader’s numbers are low.

Of course Nader’s numbers are low – he’s been excluded from coverage.

Brokaw only passes along a circular rationalization for the failure of corporate America’s idea of culture, here represented by the Commission on Presidential Debates (a privately owned corporate entity) to provide (vend) to the viewing public any semblance of authentic democratic process.

Brokaw at one point refers to “people like Nader”. Wow. What a conceptual category that must be!
