I watched 2 minutes of the debate last night on CNN before having to turn the channel so that my television didn’t get thrown through a window. I was lucky to have heard the recap on NPR this morning without having the visual which seems to enrage me more.

We now have debates which are monopolized – this one by the Clinton campaign and CNN was happy to provide that platform to her. It was a gross display of the state of politics in this country.

CNN has turned into the Jerry Springer of news organizations, with Anderson Cooper hosting “planet in peril” – I hear “DUN DUN DUN” as fear and terror continue to be the mode of communication which comes off as sensationalistic instead of informative.
