In response to skeeter20's comment:
If you can question the medias handling of the shutdown, you can question the medias handling of the problems with Obamacare.
I can see you and I will disagree about a handful of issues (not all). BUt we do agree (though not in every aspect) that the NEWS media does not do their job. A democracy fairs much better or even requires at least a fairly informed electorate... And there are almost no more jouralists. Instead of journalists (investigative or otherwise) we have CELEBRITIES whose goal and purpose is to make themselves rich, and make money for their employers who are in the business of "entertainment" not delivering the news. TO that end it is in the interest of these celebreties to stir things up like a hornets nest.
There are real issues and problems that confront us locally, acorss our states, across the nation and even across the globe. With the death of journalism and the replacement of them by professional celebrities, we get division, followed by scapegoating, followed by by animosity, followed by deep anger and hatred. Yes there are some real differences. But the actual fact is that we... voters... mostly hold similar moral and ethical values. How those translate differs somewhat but the differences are hugely magnified by businesses and celebrities whose fortunes are increased by our divide.
One central issue confronting us is the institution of legalized (and illegal) bribery that rules our government. Both parties are directly engaged in this. Neither is excempt or less guilty in this. Neither. And the voters, who often agree on this very critical, central problem find ourselves divded and angry with EACH OTHER! It is divide and conquer. It is divide and make money on our emotional responses.
THis is not a liberal media or conservative media thing. This is government based on bribery and incendiary "entertainment that pretends to be news and reporting.
It is easy to be short and even fed up with each other... but if you see the truth in the basic ideas I am laying out here we should be finding a way to UNITE to change these two things... most especially government but even the availability of news as well... And the latter must come strictly and idependently of government altogether.
