Problem and Solution

We have entered a new age of newsgathering. No longer it is important to get the footage, capture the photograph or to get the quote. It is no longer necessary to rush to the edit room to piece together a story. Today’s image of the news is based on opinion. You clearly have people delivering the news that have a personal agenda and in retrospect we always have but today the gray misty line is so blurred. What the news media needs to understand is that we do not care who balances the budget we just want it done. We do not care who fixes the state of health care and the lack thereof, we just want it fixed. There is just too much money to be made to make it a partisan issue. If you are starving you could give a shit where the money comes from you just know you want to feed your family. That is the problem and that is the solution.
