President Obama took an hour of prime time Wednesday to try explaining one of the most complex notions in government today -- why America needs to substantially change and expand its national health care system. So why did the Today show -- by far TV's most-watched morning show -- spend its first segment this morning discussing what the president said about the arrest of a black scholar in Cambridge, Mass.? Today's rival, Good Morning America, seems to have made the same choice. The press seems to be playing a game of gotcha with Obama, cherry-picking statements he makes that will make the biggest splash, regardless of what his actual speeches are focused on. -Eric Deggans, St Petersburg Times
