Elizabeth Edwards New York Times Op-Ed Slams Media's Campaign Coverage
New York Times:
FOR the last month, news media attention was focused on Pennsylvania and its Democratic primary. Given the gargantuan effort, what did we learn?
Well, the rancor of the campaign was covered. The amount of money spent was covered. But in Pennsylvania, as in the rest of the country this political season, the information about the candidates' priorities, policies and principles -- information that voters will need to choose the next president -- too often did not make the cut. After having spent more than a year on the campaign trail with my husband, John Edwards, I'm not surprised.
