An Open Letter to ABC, NBC, CBS


and NPR for that matter.  I know you don’t care about my opinion – and I really don’t care about yours either.  The only problem is, I am not ramming my opinion down your throat and calling it journalism.  It was bad enough that I had to watch Katie Couric postively moon over Barack Obama and call it a journalistic interview.  Then I had to watch MSNBC post the Breaking News Headline under Sarah Pallin “How many houses does this add to the Repulican ticket” and listen to all of you tell me why a governor of a state is not qualified to be Vice President while a one-term senator is.  I am insulted by the fact that you ask leading, negatively skewed questions and then twist the answers to suite your personal point of view.  And don’t get me started on how you treated Hillary – she was never my candidate but honestly, you are worse than a pack of 13 year old girls in the mean department.  Do I need to remind you that you are the ones who defended the former governor of Arkansas who was, according to you, quite capable of leading our country – even after it became apparent that he could not control his personal physical urges (and lied about it on numerous occassions)?  You are the ones who said over and over again that those issues had nothing to do with his leadership abilities and should be kept seperate.  But somehow you think that because Sarah Pallin’s daughter is unexpectedly pregnant that that reflects poorly on her ability to lead?  Shame on you.  Give me some credit for being able to form my own opinions and for being able to see through your veiled “journalistic” attempts at covering the election. 

We are in the midst of an historic election.  At the end of it, we will either have our first African American president or our first female vice-president.  Now that, at least in my book, is news.  Why don’t you try focusing your energies on that instead of trying to control the outcome.  Last time I checked, we the people got to decide who we wanted to vote for, not you the media.
