They inform us on nothing, they bring in a spokesman from each side and let them have their say without comment. One of them could be lying through their teeth but the news people don't tell us that but present the most outrageous lies as if it was truth, and as if facts were a matter of opinion. It didn't use to be this way, the news people would not let someone get away with lies like that. Only Olbermann does not do this but informs us of what the facts really are, not the spin.
Here all of his commentaries can be found - Countdown - in full glory. They can be read or you can watch the video's. Here's my favorite quote:
"Mr. President, these new lies go to the heart of what it is that you truly wish to preserve.
It is not our freedom, nor our country—your actions against the Constitution give irrefutable proof of that.
You want to preserve a political party’s power. And obviously you’ll sell this country out, to do it."
