Government shut down. Bogus stories about abortion funding and the budget. Wikileaks. Net neutrality. 14,000 votes in an access database on a personal computer. All important stories.
Yet, what do we get in the media? Sensationalist ambulance stories. Incendiary flaming talk shows. Reality shows. What’s the problem??
The media is supposed to be watching power – the government, the corporations, and yes, the people. How free is the media? How accurate? How thorough? How unbiased? Does it matter?
The founding fathers thought the media was pretty important for our republic. How is it doing?
