THE CULTURE OF MISTRUST: James

THE CULTURE OF MISTRUST: James Bowman puts the events of early October in perspective, when the media simultaneously attacked Arnold Schwarzenegger and Rush Limbaugh. “That is the way the media game is played in a world where outrage is a commodity and is traded on the media markets of left and right for potential gain. And not just political gain either”, Bowman writes.

Of course, Schwarzenegger won, and Limbaugh still has his radio show, if not his high profile ESPN gig. This week, the stakes seem somewhat lower in gotcha-land.
