Does it encourage rational and ethical behavior that helps shape political reality?

 

Or is It is presented as an empty puppet show with special theatrical devices used to deceive common sensibility?

 

Are people supposed to trust their appeal to the ethos?

 

Is the pathos they present used to direct our collective emotion towards an overblown, fiat sense of power?

 

Never mind the logos...

Criticize the substance of facts? Practically anything can be implied from facts. The question should be which 'facts' are really the most important for the great American Experiment to consider.

I think it's important to keep our mind on the actions our leaders do and take a closer look as to why certain emotions are injected into the masses by the media.

This is one action I see: destroy their reputations by digging into their private lives and present it as a scandal. Pushing the conflict forward forcing people to choose sides in a story that really has no relevance to the greater issues the country is facing. Some issues are long term and historical in nature with distorted truths embedded in stained glass. Issues that have driven the nation forward with a driving force of industrial might for a very long time.
