Gibbs Press Briefing July 30

Here's where I agree with Sarah Palin--the media. I think they do an average job. They're pulled to controversy much too easily and they don't cover enough of the stuff that matters to everyone. I wouldn't, however, blame the media for Palin's demise. The media simply highlighted her weaknesses. It wasn't Katie's fault that Palin didn't know foreign policy.
It would be really cool if some media outlet combed through the various healthcare bills and did some honest analysis. What we need more of is not the back and forth, not the politics, but information that's going to help us make up our minds.
