Weekend Watchdog Wrapup

Terrance Heath

Well, it looks like another 0-for-3 weekend for the watchdog, as most of the questions focused less on the economy and more on the presidential race and campaign tactics.

Michigan Governor Jennifer Granhlom — who stood in for Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin during Sen. Joe Biden’s debate prep — was asked about that experience on CBS’s Face the Nation, rather than how the economic downturn has impacted people in her state.

On NBC’s Meet the Press, Paul Begala spent more time fielding questions about campaign tactics than the economy.

And, on Fox News Sunday, Karl Rove was spared any questions about conservative’s penchant for deregulation and how it relates to the current economic crisis.

Oh well, maybe next week we’ll actually hear about the issues.
