Even as the Candidates Make Nice, the TV Crew Hopes for a Fight - New York Times

I thought this article was interesting because we commonly think of the media as the primary source for understanding the positions of the candidates. When you read this, consider, to what extent can we trust the media to provide that important function in a democratic society? Are there other institutions better suited to provide that role (providing information about candidates)?
