So maybe the question is, does the MS Media have their priorities in the right order? Does NSA spying or collecting data on America, is that worse than a bridge’s lane closing or more significant? Does the IRS targeting conservative groups keeping them from airing their ads, is that worse than a bridge’s lane closing or more significant? A free speech issue perhaps. What about all that has been happening with the ACA for the entire month of January, the ACA effects a whole lot more people than a bridge’s lane closure?
But then perhaps the question surrounding Christie is not so much the lane closures, but political vindictiveness and payback using government means to do it. If so, then shouldn’t it be front page news? After all most Americans can relate to traffic jams and lane closures whereas the IRS curbing speech and NSA collection of data is more abstract unless it happens to you personally. Is the IRS, NSA also using government means for political payback, maybe?
Perhaps the news presented whether warranted or not is determined by what sells and viewers attracted. If so the Christie story is a lot more news worthy, the other pale in comparison. This is just some thoughts that passed through my mind. I don’t have answers, just thoughts I would like to get answers to.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
It's why they call it NEWs.
