The election onslaught is at once informative and confusing. This is possibly due the types of media coverage we see and hear daily. The information age is squarely upon us and becoming more dominant. With this being the situation we all need to spend more time reading the fine print. While the reporting is usually competent often the employer of the reporter has a say over what is reported and how it is reported, which leads to misinformation. Free press is no longer free in the sense of the honest presentation of  information. Each news maker uses the media as a tool to present their views as fact when often there is an underlying agenda which is not necessarily in the best interest of the country or public as a whole. All elections have become popularity contests espousing whatever it takes to maintain or gain an elected office. Once in office the script is flipped and their “agenda” in enacted. Notable script flippers: Mitch McConnell, Darryl Issa, et al. Gaining a position of power is the way these people can make changes that benefit them and their ($) backers. They selectively give interviews or statement to the press to further or start an issue which again does not benefit us as a whole. This selective blurbing takes attention away from the real issues and at the same time hides their real work. We have had a dysfunctional Congress for many years and we keep electing them because they promised to do something but that promise has always been preceded by innuendo and lies that appear true and honest but are a slimy as the underside of a rock. Since the Congress has spent no time actually doing what they were elected to do, shouldn’t  we make an effort put someone else in their place?
