More Reporters, Less Audience

Michael Wolff: "Here we are, in an age when all news organizations have massive resource challenges, and yet, there are four times more media people at each convention than delegates. Resources are hardly the only issue. The larger point is that Americans as a whole (rather than Americans as a targeted demographic) care less and less about politics."

"I'm not sure it's possible to emphasize enough the point about how little people are interested in politics - that is, the people who are not paid to be interested in it, or the fringe who take their identity from it. Sometimes, I think the political system can't comprehend this fact or conspires to hide it."
