it also brings up an interesting issue: the media panders to politicians these days. campaigns and politics have been ruined by the news and internet and television – the hard hitting questions dont seem to matter anymore. and politicians have become used to this. theyve become soft – they expect certain questions from the media, and dont want to be pressed on the real issues. they get away with this most of the time, because most americans are too caught up in all the bullshit to care beyond mccain’s wealth and hillary’s pantsuits. but recent events and probing questions reveal that maybe America does care after all.
