Media Rehashes and Rehashes Race Despite Truce

even though sen. obama and sen. clinton called a truce on this whole race issue (which has been misconstrued on both sides), the media will not let it go.
this morning, it was rehashed. all the morning news programs had the refrain: even though the candidates said let's get on with it, this is what happened said the media, and they droned on and on, blah, blah, blah.
of course, they had to rehash because if they didn't they would've had to come up with new programming on the fly.
the media is so obviously being used by the candidates and the the media is using the tight race to draw viewers and listeners. but do we really care about that stuff? mere distractions.
we know that both obama and clinton admire Martin Luther King (Happy Birthday), so how about we raise the game a little? after all, listening to all the blah blah blah is how we got W.
