With all the news shows reporting more of their personal preference for candidate, are people really making an informed decision? And with races called on the east coast shown of tv swaying voters to vote on what they portray as the winning candidate, rather then their choice?
In my opinion, the news shows hurt more than help. I feel that the news is wrong on whst they report at least 80 to 90 percent of the time. They are in it for the show and money and don't really care about the end results. And way too many people vote according to what they see on the news shows. So, that in itself hurts because people in general are to lazy to research what/who they are voting for and vote just to say "I voted". That hurts us worse than NOT voting. My opinion, Greg
Honestly, the media indirectly hurts the political process with 'some' networks using their biased opinions for or against the candidates running for office.
