When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play
No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

."... The point, instead, is that this hot-button catch phrase had no place alongside defined political issues on the list of most important concerns in the 2004 vote. Its presence there created a deep distortion - one that threatens to misinform the political discourse for years to come.... - "A Question of Values," Gary Langer, ABCNews, New York Times article, Published: November 6, 2004 http://www.nytimes.com/2004/11/06/opinion/06langer.html
I agree totally with you, Mr. Langer; however, in my opinion, the fact that what you speak about is published from a "profit-motive" corporation limits your efforts to speak to many of the people that are just sick and tired of the "media bias" (regardless of whether the bias is unfairly perceived - the stakes are becoming too high, today, to trust a journalist's interpretation of facts) that has underscored our ability to just "read the facts" and make an intelligent decision - as an ordinary common American.
I realize folks need to make a living - and, working for corporations seems to have been the only course of feeding your family, but the things you have to give up from your soul - is it really worth it?
For me, if was not.
