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.

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.

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...

Learning about the different techniques on how political rhetoric is used for and against a society helps to alleviate the confusion generated by the media.

I think it helps people to slow down their thinking and start looking at other resources to find knowledge and answers to the deeper meanings in political jargon. Among other things. Don't forget the entertainment factor. Statics and numbers are all important in that environment.

Bitch about the issues all you like. Argue about who's diddling who ad nausium. Bottom line it all comes down to economic freedom. Too many policies are in place that limit the common man to expand his/her own horizons. All include degrees of privilege with fees attached. Making it almost impossible to rise out of the muck of debt. The only thing trickling down the stepping stones of the pyramid is grease causing all climbers slide down to the bottom.

They're all practiced professionals with resources to back them up. They also happen to be resources themselves.

 

High profile resources.

 

Kind of like the latest novel from the late Tom Clancy....

Pheeding the phallic phuk only serves to distract the mass.
 
Slapstick social muppets pushing their pandered filth freely with abandoned freedom only serves their masters.  
 
Stuffiing their greedy gulleys with artificial glory only enhances the bulbously bobble headed ego.

What is this crap? Some kind of morality play? Suck my balls. I call bullshit.

The ribald flower of language falls freely with an attitude of a flowering flounce!
 
Fat, bloated, oddball socks sitting in baskets attached to clouds spouting out their tittillating fancies. 
 
Blowing swamp gas to those below with slanderous character attacks.
 
All with a happy and gay smile.
 
Good morning, everyone! (Evil Grin)
 
Today your doom is at hand.
