ETWilson -- Yes are we subjected to "analysis" and switching back and forth between MSNBC and Fox News you'll get two different perspectives of what is important in that analysis. However, even conveying just facts, events and images contains degrees of politicization. And much of the public is not even able to make a distinction of relevance. So many of the issues covered in the media should be relegated to the back pages, while important events catch little attention. As long as we are spending hours discussing "trivia" such as Obama's birth certificate, or anything Sarah Palin, we are not critically thinking about what really affects people's lives.
