The Secret Deal Between the Democrats and Republicans To Control the Presidential Debates

"The only way to forestall the work of criticism (critical thought) is through censorship, which has the same relation to criticism that lynching has to justice."
Northrop Frye


Would you be surprised to learn that secret deals between the two major US political parties and the major news media control access to the Presidential debates, thereby controlling the discussion, turning them into show pieces and beauty contests obsessed with the trivial and the technicalities of performance art, rather than substantive discussions of the issues?

Did you wonder why third party messages and non-corporately sponsored ideas are completely ignored in the discussions, debates, and for the most part in the 'free press?'

It appears that for at least once the Democrats and Republicans were able to agree on something. They agreed to monopolize access to the presidential debate, with the help of a compliant and greedy corporate media, in a way that would almost certainly violate the antitrust laws, assuming these politicians were subject to any laws but their own.

This is not a serious and original discussion of the issues. This is bread and circuses. Bread for the media and the politicians, and circuses for the people. http://jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com/2012...

I do admit, each party has it's own wealthy corporations to donate and support them. Donations being tax deductable.

And I do admit that it's possible that both parties, upon becoming President; do allow the wealthy supporters to tell them what to do, to keep their own nest filled.

And I do admit that millionaires can throw their weight around and have the President thrown out if he dont do what they want him to do.

Upon admitting all of the above, I now admit that it's possible that neither party is worth a $hit.

That may well be true.
