DEMOCRACY DEPENDS ON AN INFORMED ELECTORATE!
Use common sense. Are the newscasters asking the common sense questions that you are asking? Are the news casters answering the common sense questions that you are asking? Are you forming your own questions and conclusions or are you just accepting everything you hear as the complete accurate truth?
Unfortunately these days the news networks are sales people, trying to sell you their perspective on the events of the day. Scrutinize their reports the way you would a used car salesman. Use common sense. Stay informed. An informed American is a responsible American. Stay informed; be a responsible American.
