Jeff Greenfield, CNN Senior Analyst and Time Magazine columnist examines the ongoing tension between traditional ethics and modern politics in this inaugural address for the Capps Forum on Ethics at UC Santa Barbara. Among the questions Greenfield raises are whether politicians truly debate the serious issues of the day, whether major media outlets provide honest and rigorous analysis of those issues and whether voters care one way or the other.
