That would be bad for their business since problems are what they thrive on.
A government that does not know what it is doing often gets gulled into hiring these strategists to do the same things they wanted to do but with a scapegoat attached. And the deeper the crisis the higher the circulation and viewership even if it’s only talking points being regurgitated.
This hit home yesterday when MY9 got these people together to discuss the pension crisis in New Jersey which I watched because the two political strategists involved were both from the law firm (DeCotiis, Fitzpatrick & Cole, LLP) that runs the county I live in, principally by having a bunch of their partners get together and donate $30,000 each election cycle to the campaigns of the party in office. If they were truly interested in being honest about helping taxpayers their experience of campaign financing would prove enlightening.
As for their knowledge of the pension crisis it is secondhand, gleaned from studies and anecdotes that support their interests, which leaves them only to parrot those opinions without being able to explain, defend, or even understand the real situation. Here is a taste:
Usually these political types make problems appear worse so they can put into a play a solution that happens to benefit them personally (think solar panels solving the energy crisis) but in the case of the New Jersey pension system collapse those same people do not have the wherewithal (or inclination) to appreciate the actual scope of the disaster since an aspect of any real solution would threaten their incomes.
