I think that one of the biggest issues in the "what's wrong with America" bucket is that we are becoming a "low information voter block." What is sold as news is heavily slanted towards one agenda or another. On Fox News conservatives are the hero of every story. Meanwhile, MSNBC is still debating who cool Obama is and how rotten anyone who doesn't follow the left is. Neither offers a complete story and usually the closest you go get is one of the "debate" segments where the panel is stacked 3 to 1 or better in favor of an agenda.
So, a serious question, where do you go to get actual information to make an informed decision either on politics or on general current affairs?
