No, the problem is we have way too much entertainment today. Most people know more about their favorite American Idol than they do their Congressman or Senator. We spend a lot of time on the internet, video games, cell texting, FaceBook, NetFlix, but not politics or issues.
It takes a lot of time to understand politics. It requires a lot of listening, a lot of reading, a lot of research. Most people won't dedicate that kind of time, and the sad thing these are the people who actually decide elections.
Sure. they may tune in for important events like the State of Idiocy the other night, or perhaps Presidential debates. That's fine, but a person involved in politics will likely watch these things too while screaming BULLSHIP every five or ten minutes. The rest just sit there and believe what they hear.
The mainstream is CBS, NBC and ABC. While their news audience has been falling the last couple of years, their ratings are far above any of the cable news networks including Fox.
