From the Editor: “Mediacracy”

By Mike Rosso

I’m a full-time news junkie and part-time political junkie. You’d think this election season has been manna for a person like myself.

Instead, I’m repulsed by the notion that I am even remotely associated with the formerly respected fourth estate. Not satisfied with their roles as reporters, the major media has abrogated that role to become advocates for whatever shiny object brings the most revenue. Whether it’s a reality TV star who was born with a silver spoon up his “whatever,” or a group of charlatans running for the highest office in the nation who wouldn’t know the truth if it was smacked across their faces like a dead fish, the mainstream media – especially television – is doing a tremendous disservice to its viewers.
