Who's In the Money?

I’ll be the first to admit, I found this week’s news reports about the FEC’s second quarter financial reports a bit confusing. And I have stated on more than one occasion that I don’t think money is a major issue right now.

In one of the best articles I’ve seen on the subject, Slate’s William Saletan talks about “the folly of horse-race journalism” and offers advice that everyone should heed - particularly members of the Fourth Estate. In the spirit of Watchblog, and in an effort to help voters wade through the muck and mire of political information to find useful and valuable insight, we could use more columnists like Saletan.
