Exclusive outtakes from industry leaders

Shift in power on the horizon in Washington?

September 20, 2010

USA/
Republicans stand poised to gain substantial influence in Congress, putting at stake billions of dollars in investment as a shift among power brokers throws legislative initiatives old and new into doubt. Reuters Washington Summit will bring together an influential line-up of insiders just weeks before Americans cast their votes, promising a must-read stream of exclusive news on the outlook for Congress and President Barack Obama’s agenda. Editors and correspondents from the Reuters Washington bureau are sitting down with senior lawmakers, including GOP heavyweights in line for leadership, and regulators whose implementation of Wall Street and healthcare reform could be complicated by a change in control on Capitol Hill.

The Summit will generate exclusive stories, investable insights, online videos and blog postings, which will be immediately available only to Thomson Reuters clients during the Summit. Key interviews will air live exclusively on Reuters Insider – a new multimedia platform delivering relevant news, analysis and trade ideas presented through a personalized video experience.

Sounds great… Problem is the news people never ask the tough questions, and then never press for an answer as they let the pols, and the wonks dance around the issues…
As long as this game is continued, and nobody’s feet get held to the fire, nothing will change.
It will only change when the American public stops living from sound-bite to sound-bite and starts holding their elected officials accountable.
Get schooled. It’s educational….
