why does the media keep giving these nutballs a forum to shout in, even if it is "trainwecky", by airing it on TV, doesnt it give them some sort of legitimacy? I mean, I know "news programs" on television these days basically go on the same format as reality television shows, but geez...I know a couple of bridges they can check under to find the next great political mouthpiece if they're lacking in material.

Not sure. People say an example of media bias is their tendency to choose the least credible loudmouths as the unofficial spokesman of a movement they want to discredit.

but again, I direct your attention back to the dude shouting at the lamp-post on the corner - is the media "attempting to shut down debate and discredit" his movement by not covering it too? And by movement, realize we're dealing with the post-Internet age, where any sort of complete whackjob kookoo theorist can find someone else who holds the same beliefs because they were able to post it to the web and find like-minded nutjobs.

Although, having said that I already worry - we're probably not a long way off from those sorts of interviews.
