With some regularity I catch a bit or two of KNPR's program State of Nevada. The shows have always been some of the poorest examples of mainstream media. Today for example they talked about credit card debt. The oft ineffective interviewer let the industry representative Nessa Feddif do a Nixonian job of not telling a lie. When the chap from consumer credit counseling said that universal default information is in small print, for example, Feddif responds that credit cards are required to put the default rates in large (10-point) type. So more spin goes without notice.
