I totally agree with Brendan. The media should cover the substance of the bill because of the severity of the economic crisis. Also, the bill should be covered because IMHO it will harm to the economy, not help it.

I had noticed some time ago the New York Times practice of cogently describing the provisions of a complex bill like this, but only after it had been signed into law. They, and the rest of the media, could perform a useful public service if they told us what was in the bill at a time when we still had a chance to contact our representatives and influence the final law.
