The ol' professor on the morning talk show circuit today, hitting coverage of the debate. Like me, he has blasted Obama's performance while also noting media failure to frame Romney's lies properly. "The press just doesn’t know how to handle flat-out untruths...Isn’t our job, at least partially — never mind the quality of the theatrical performance — but to ask about, were there untruths spoken in that debate?" The GOPers all reply, nah, that was just up to the president.
