With all the 'Alarm Bells” being sounded concerning the hacking and interference in our recent election cycle, a question arises as to why no bells are being sounded to alert us to the constant daily interference in the election process by Talk Radio and Cable news programs. Is it possible that these two media types have done far more permanent damage to our election process than Russian hacking could ever do?
In an effort to be the First- Breaking News, Most Knowledgeable- Pundit Parade, and Impact/Interpretation- Predicting the Future, these programs appear to have a constant need to wow us with their brilliance and mastery of the facts- never realizing the damage being done to our election process that could be far worse and more lasting than any single Cyber Attack that seems to have evaded no-one (save One). This constant barrage of opinions leading to fake news, false expectations and the destruction of any real compromise opportunity, shows little chance for 'Making America Great Again'. It appears that they operate for the sole purpose of doing our thinking for us, so that we only need to focus on their well rehearsed performances and self importance, with little need for us to be bothered about facts or what would actually be in our best interest.
Or, maybe, like the Russians, they know exactly what they are doing!
