It gets tiresome listening to politicians. Its almost pointless to ask them a question. I've worked major market radio news for almost 25 years. Ive interviewed 2 presidents, Senators, Governors, Members of Congress and Mayors. Even if you bulls eye them with a pointed direct question citing evidence, they'll waltz you around with some kind of sales pitch that sounds like an advertisement for a happy place where no one gets hurt. There are reporters, journalists, revolutionaries and crusaders who delve, dig, and keep up the pressure till the truth comes out. I applaud their resolve. It's almost a calling beyond a career. Ever hear the old phrase, "No matter who wins the government gets in" ? I've never bought a different brand of paper towels based on who gets elected. I vote, but I also live my life largely unchanged. I have a less lofty interest to accumulate, arrange and present the days total color spectrum of news… all the way from what really matters in this world to whether or not "The Beebs" is taking driving lessons from "Lilo". Presentation I suppose helps the final product reach the masses. If a teaspoon of sugar helps the medicine go down, nowadays we need to coat it in honey, molasses and maple syrup. The nations attention span is nil. The Twitter credo of 140 characters or less, case in point. Still, freedom of the press must continue to exist insofar as it leverages a check and balance against power which ultimately corrupts. I guess I'll always care, but grow jaded.
