Snakes with microphones and pens and paper would have been better understood.

Ann ~~~ Do you think how we might vote or who takes office really even matters concerning what is going to happen to all the sheeples in America? It is a program that seems to have no bearing on which party is actually put in power and it goes down no matter what. All the media does is play up to all the distractive hoopla.

Bingo! Thank you.
The earlier news estimate of 215,000 at theStewart/Cobert was a gross underestimate.
Attendance was at least double that, and More when including those who couldn't get through the transport mess to join the huge crowd.

Geeze! I hope those sensible sane folks vote!

The assertion that cable news is the problem is false. These shows would die in a week if nobody watched them or brought the products advertised by them. The problem is with those of us in the public who depend on them for our knowledge of the political world. Our information shouldn’t only come from Fox News, who sell its products by making us afraid, or from Comedy Central (also a form of cable news), who sell its products by making us laugh. It had best come from our own experiences, reasoning and wisdom.

Seeing the roll some news stations, papers, blogs and magazines is both depressing and disturbing. Rather than verifying and honestly presenting news, many "reporters", commentators, anchor people and analyst are not interested in keeping us informed but in ridiculing those they disagree with, presenting misinformed, mindless and one sided stories. In listening to their presentations I wonder what school of journalism they attended, since so much of what they say and report is dumb, unprofessional and slanted. What has been created is a news system that is only interested in ratings, shock news, influence peddling and filling news time and space. They have unfortunately created a toxic atmosphere for people who really want to make our country and planet a better place.
