    if the media shills for the right-wing 24/7.  Practically every good candidate will be attacked by the media from day 1 of their campaign.  Voter suppression is a right wing strategy and it is working through many mechanisms.  

    Don't argue with your basic point but there is a context to these dismal statistics.

    The Long War is not on Iraq, Afghanistan, or Iran. It is on the American people.

    •  I just wanted to get this out there... (0+ / 0-)

      start the discussion.

      you hit a key point...how does the money in politics flow...

      the 1%'ers donate to the politicians...the pols spend it for ads...which the media profits from...why would the media want to upset that...it would hurt their pocketbooks.
