Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: State Legislatures and ALEC

If John Oliver can spend 17 minutes on state legislatures and ALEC when he only has 30 minutes a week, why can't a real news program that airs daily or a 24 hour news network that runs 7 days a week? I just don't understand.

I watched Steve Kornacki and Melissa Harris-Perry this weekend as well as Meet the Press and George Stephanopolis (well more like had on in the background or fast forwarded through) and they just covered the horse race, the polls. Not once did they cover any issue any of the candidates were running on. Though a few times they mentioned that the GOP is just running against Obama and not for anything. But if they're really not running on anything (and I could believe that) imagine what would happen if the press was constantly pointing that out.
