    Not one of my local stations even mentioned the fact that ERCOT raised the cap onthe rpice of wholesale elctricity just one day befor eth recent blackouts/record usage.

    the news does everything it can to not tell the truth.

    Its not the journalists.  Its the editors in charge of what makes it to air or print.

    of course, sloppy journalists are also a big problem.

    But in Texas I just get the feeling that many people work hard and drink beer and dont ever stop to examine the news.  They assume they are being told what matters.

    I used to think that way too until I stopped drinking and started paying attention.

    It may seem strange to some liberals but voting Republican is a way of life for many.  If it remains unexamined, it will continue.
