I have invariably adored this show and been impressed with the balanced presentation of various points of view...until today. Jonathan Carr's introductory montage preceding the section on the budget cuts felt highly slanted and manufactured to elicit a partisan response. My suspicion was confirmed through the disturbing use of the famous clip from Howard Dean's presidential campaign, the repeated media play of which is credited with ending the momentum of his campaign and ultimately his presidential bid. I can think of NO LEGITIMATE REASON to use this 2004 clip to talk about the current budget crisis.
2004...really? That clip was from a rally responding to losing the Iowa Caucus and the clip itself had
to do with a budget crisis at that time or the clairvoyance of one 7 years in the future. The clip is neither timely nor its content relevant to the story. And I don't like what it has to say about what ABC thinks of the intelligence of its viewers.
