Preemption in the Media

The broadcast media has largely ignored the Supreme Court’s ruling in Medtronic v. Riegel. But I found a clip from MSNBC’s “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” on preemption and President Bush’s efforts until the bitter end to push for preemption.

Keith Olbermann’s portrait on these things is not exactly “fair and balanced.” I think it is a mistake not to present more fully both sides of the argument because it is hard to change minds without presenting all the facts. But I’m just thrilled to see some broadcast media discussion – albeit MSNBC – of the perils of preemption.
