are you constantly watching and reading the news? i can’t stop.
i must admit i’ve always been a bit of a news junkie… just one of many vices i’ve learned to live with over the years.
i keep most of them in check, most of the time. really. you’d be surprised.
yet despite my most valiant efforts, i’ve not been able to ignore the recent saturation of political coverage following the GOP and DNC conventions, nor the steady decline in the emotional and intellectual integrity of much of our political discourse this election cycle.
what we’re witnessing has never before been seen in the history of american presidential politics.
this to be seems true not just on mainstream media, but in our online conversations as well. a markedly divided america is gearing up for the november election, and the contrast between the two candidates of the country’s major political parties and their vastly different visions for the future have created an environment of unprecedented agitation and aggression amongst their supporters.
there is an unusual frenzy around the upcoming presidential debates – it’s expected they’ll bring the largest international television viewing audience in history.
i know i’ll be watching.
