I have been politically active since before I could vote. For the first time in my life, I am totally disillusioned with a system that allows the media to control the campaign with what they support or don't support, quote or don't quote, rephrase or misinterpret. It is a total betrayal of everything that journalism is supposed to be.
Whomever you support, take the time to read this Crooks and Liars column. Nations have been enslaved simply because their media only reported what the powers that be wanted the populace to hear. This political season is an "I'm Mad As Hell" moment in the life of our nation. It may already be too late to stick up for freedom and a press that actually reports what is happening rather than what they want you to think happened, but we need to try.
Write a letter to the editors. Send an email. Make phone calls. Protest in front of buildings. Tune your TVs to C-SPAN or the BBC ... anything but the networks either mainline or cable. Let them know you will not let your freedoms be shredded by an ego driven punditry.
