The good thing about instant news coverage is that we know what is happening around the world and in our nation. The bad thing is the truth sometimes lags behind the lies which sometimes arrive before it. We have become inured to reading or listening to more than one source of information. This hardness has created factions that at once beg for information but lock on to a single source that appears rational but is often not. This attachment to semi or nontruths often comes in the form of “entertainment” news which appears in print and in mass media. Our political system has embraced the “entertainment” news to supplement their “Politispeak”. What I have observed is that the current (1950’s to present) political scene has been filled with sensationalizers and outright liars whose messages seem real only because of the media coverage and the speed at which it travels. Currently, we have headlining seat-fillers whose loyalty is to themselves and their party, not the people who voted them to the office. Our understanding of the issues has to be the basis of our voting with this in mind, we must remember that lies are lies pure and simple. Any office holder or aspirant to an office who lied once will continue to lie when elected (this should be apparent with our current “ins”) no matter which party, left, right or center they espouse. This “aint” no way to run a country.
