Years ago the mass media covered politics differently. What was discussed where matters of public policy. Policy decisions like should we raise or
lower the minimum wage. Should we allow prayer in school. Should we negotiate ICBM reduction treaty with the Soviets. Oil executives were brought
before Congress to testify why they were gouging the American people when the World is awash in oil supply. Everything was focused on policy
discussions. I would love for policy makers to discuss if it is in US national interests to continue dropping 35,000 bombs on Muslims in the Middle
East year after year.
Today we have nothing but National Enquirer BS. Everything in politics is about character assassination and attacks on a particular politicians
personality. Why was there a picture of Bill Clinton wearing a blue dress for Jeffrey Epstein's office. Did Hillary Clinton participate in
pedophilia. Conjecture about who killed Epstein to cover up their pedophilia. Greta Thunberg's yacht trip to America more harmful to environment
than flying. Donald Trump rips Democrats for calling supporters "Nazis".
I prefer the days when character assassinations and mud throwing politics were secondary to public policy discussions. Today, changes in public
policies are simply not talked about. For me the way mass media covers politics is purely entertainment. I never purchased National Enquirer. If
it's just worthless mud throwing entertainment then I choose other forms of entertainment.
I get more entertainment out of playing fantasy football than debating conjecture and opinion on whether or not Bill Clinton is a trans-dressing
pedophile. But rock on you warriors of justice trying to get Hillary and Obama indicted. I'm still waiting for them to get arrested. Any day
It's fantasy football season!!!!!
