Please oh pleeeeeeease can the media report something about the campaigns that has to do with an ISSUE?! Goddamnit I am so effing sick of this crazy hype that just gives more airtime to ridiculous lies and petty ads! And I don't want to read headlines about the GOP "faulting both campaigns for negative ads" when they are the ones intentionally deceiving the public with their slime and smears and immoral, lowlife, gutter "politics". Holding a stupid press conference about their false disapproval just serves to get them more media attention for the wrong thing and I hate the media for reporting on it and I hate that I'm writing about it right now but I'm just so hopping mad. I want to hear about the candidate's opinions and plans for ending the war, saving the economy, converting to green energy, changing our education law, protecting our elections from fraud, and how my family is going to be able to afford to heat our home this winter, among a host of other real issues. I see the Obama campaign talking about these issues in a very real, honest way every day because I bother to go looking for it. Why isn't our media covering that? I have my thoughts about the reasons for that, but it doesn't stop me from being sick to death of it. My personal Pulitzer to the first major media outlet to stop paying attention to the BS and give the public our desperately-needed fresh air in politics.
