There will be just 58 days before the midterm elections this Sunday, and just in time “Meet the Press” will have its new anchor, Chuck Todd, in the moderator chair. Let’s hope that Todd’s preview in this Politico story is accurate and that the show will return to its roots of having lengthy interviews, with individuals of consequence that have something important to say.
Because, when “Meet the Press” is firing on all cylinders, you walk away more informed and have some insight into the news of the coming week, rather than analysis of the past.
To say that Washington is dysfunctional is doing a disservice to the word dysfunction. We are in an era of immense consequence, confusion, instability and change, here nationally and across the world. Yet, too often, we consume the ‘junk food’ horse race political updates, regurgitated partisan zingers that have been dulled to the sharpness of a spork, and the seemingly least consequential news of the political world.
