For those that do not know, I love the political system. The service, the plans, the games, and the rhetoric. It's fun to follow.
I had a chat with my General Manager and VP, Tim Ingram, about politics and the media a few months back. I wondered why the anchors on Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC could tell if they were Democrat or Republican, yet we could not. He explained that they are "cable" outlets and we are a "broadcast" station. We have standards that they don't have. Plus, it is company policy for us to be unbiased. Does this mean we don't vote? NO... It just means that we don't go around tooting what man (or woman) we will be voting for in the election. No bumper stickers, No signs, No political fund-raisers.
That does not mean we can't chat about both sides. So, what are your thoughts so far? We have a young man that captivates an audience running with a Senator that has been in Washington for a long time for the Democrats. Then, we have an older military hero running with an attractive Governor from Alaska that nobody knew 5 days ago. Which pairing will run the show for the next four years? Make you comments in the comments section.
Sticking with the topic... I was in the gym this morning watching "Morning Joe". I know it is not "ABC", but I love that show. Anywho, Chris Matthews made the election very simple. He said... It's about the issues. He listed the views of both candidates and said to vote with who you agree with... Simple, huh?
So, here's a test for you. Take this test to see who you SHOULD vote for based on the issues and not on the candidates "likability". You may surprise yourself. If you do not understand one of the topics, Google it and research it.
Feel free to voice your opnion about the election in the comments section.
Off to bed,
