Why is the weekly Presidential Address virtually ignored?

Why is the weekly Presidential Address virtually ignored? Even Liberal media outlets ignore this weekly outreach to the American people and the world. Occasionally soundbites are pulled but this is a rare thing as well. So why is the Presidential Weekly Address ignored even by the "Liberal" media? This week was a big push by Obama to give congress a "To Do List". I barely heard about this anywhere. Here is the latest posted to YouTube...as they all are of course.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RO5cpFw-ChU The White House YouTube account.http://www.youtube.com/user/whitehouse Is the Address not sexy enough? Sometimes it is too "Presidential"? I would think the boiling down of "this is what the Presidential Address focused on in moving the nation FORWARD....." would be plenty worthy of some attention. It is kind of amazing considering the 24 hour news cycle seeking more and more ridiculous "news" items that the weekly address by the President receives virtually 0 attention in the media and even in the "Liberal" media. Why? @JoeWo

Could it be that nobody cares to listen to his bullshit. A "to do list" for Congress? His party has contol of the Senate.

The media don't want to challenge the right wing bs about his policies having failed. If they broadcast or printed the obstructionist truth, and the successful truth, the narrative of the majority of radio and fox would be challenged. One truth they have offered is that nothing will be passed in 2012. 84 John Birchers are running the country, 4 and 1/2 Birchers on the SCOTUS.

Because it is usually nothing newsworthy, just the usual political posturing.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
