i was watching some thing on tv yesterday when they had reps from both partys on there and someone from the media and one of the questions to the media and the parties was based on some of the stuff that the media been saying about the parties and both parties and the rep from the media said most of the stuff they been saying and posting on the internet is faulse they said they did it because they where running out of things to say about the politics and each party asked the media lady why and they said because evertime they talk about politics there ratings go up when they dont there rateings drop so they are doing it to keep them up then the rep party rep was asked how it feels to be left out of things going on and she said they are not left out they get to give there input when needed and that roomer needs to be put to rest , she also said sure there are things they don't aleways agree on but there are a lot they do agree on . the point of this is i was suprised that this was even on tv i mean i knew that some stuff was made up but i didnt think a lot of it was just for stuped rateings. how does everyone else feel about this.

It isn't just ratings. Each network and each parties have a vested interest in each other. All 3 of the major news networks are in cahoots with one or the other big two parties. So they each push the parties ideals, leading us two believe that we are getting different points from each. The rality is the points being pushed are either irelevent to matters of governemnt or are THE EXACT SAME THING. They push a lie, a lie that one party or the other is better or some how different from each other. It's an illusion.

my point exactley but everyone wants to believe the media or what they see on the internet which is just crazy
