The establishment press’ version of political news exploits the personal lives of political players like Trump and Palin, instead of dissecting their stances on domestic or foreign policy. By sensationalizing inane trivialities and under reporting the real news, Junk Food News coverage grossly distorts the context and relevance of important issues in the political discourse.

(And then the smoke rolled in from the 100,000 acre fire near Los Alamos”¦) I don’t know how much more of this a body can take. (This is my friend John’s site, check it out)

Have a great weekend everyone!
