This is my repost from another thread, but thought its worth noting.
And bringing up. Because this election is so important.
And we are so easily distracted.

The national press is both bored and embarrassed.
Bored they can not create a cat fight between ANY of the Candidates.
And embarrassed they were totally 100% WRONG with all their predictions
that Obama was going to win N.H. by 10+ points, and Hillary was going to pack it in afterwards.

The press wants to create these little dog fights between the Candidates.
Even the littlest comment gets full 24/7 coverage.

You'd think, by watching msnbc, nbc, abc, cbs, fox, etc etc,
that none of the candidates talk about anything else but nit picking.
Well, on the trail they talk healthcare, taxes, the war, economy.

On the national debates, they are egged on by questions like
"was Bill Clinton our first black president". A total BS question
that means NOTHING to American voters.

Too bad we can not ban all national press coverage,
and force everyone to get their news from c-span live coverage ONLY.

I hope readers are tired of this, and more important, do not fall for it AGAIN THIS TIME...

The press has this illusion they are God, and call all the shots.
They constantly spin everything. Spin spin spin.

They treat Americans like we are all 4 year olds with the attention
spans of 3 year olds. Is that how you feel???
Thats how they view you!

THE MEDIA is not a monolith that conspires to tell people what THE MEDIA wants them to know and think. There are too many news sources available for THE MEDIA to exist or be dominant.

I am not saying thqt some of the news mediq hqs not been wrong from time to time, It has. Who is perfect?

The First Amendment is so annoying when those speaking freely aren't saying what you want. Wouldn't you agree?
