Dear Ralph, et al,
My perception is that the “media” needs a ‘close race’ in order to retain the purchase of commercial time by both “sides”,and thereby maintain their seriously large financial income streams from same.
Facts and benefits to the “People/community” have become unimportant and are no longer a consideration, even though that is the commitment they supposedly make to utilize “the airwaves, which belong to the People.”
Thanks for your informative column.
