This week the Susan G. Komen Foundation cut funding for Planned Parenthood, Mitt Romney made headlines when he said he wasn't "concerned about the very poor," and Florida's GOP Primary went to Mitt Romney, with Newt Gingrich clenching a distant second.

This week's panel is Jeff Yang, writer of the Tao Jones column for the Wall Street journal and blogger at our co-producer WNYC's political website, It's a Free Country; Farai Chideya, journalist and blogger at Farai.com; and Ron Christie, Republican political strategist, CEO of Christie Strategies, and former special assistant to George W. Bush.

Hey, wasn't there a Congressional hearing with the Attorney General yesterday discussing how the ATF sent thousands of weapons across the border into Mexico which resulted in mass carnage and the tragic loss of US Border Patrol agent? Isn't there investigations regarding serious corruption allegations in the Justice Department going on now? Isn't that worth a discussion?

Never mind, let's hear more about how Mitt Romney who has donated millions of dollars to charity and was once a missionary really hates the poor and Obama who has created the rise of poverty and unemployment from the golf course is concerned about the poor.

The media decides what is important and the majority of the media is supportive of Obama therefore the media is not trustworthy. Reality and the media narrative does not match.
