Like most good ideas Television coverage of elections started out innocent and innovative But in the years since its creation television has slowly eroded the foundation of our unique election process It has turned a sacred tradition and reduced it to a pathetic sideshow Inspiring election speeches have been whittled away to sound bites The dream of young Americans to rise up out of poverty taking hold of the highest office in the land through perseverance has been shattered into a reality of corporations and million dollar fundraisers I had hoped for the support of Kathleen Hall Jamison Yes who wrote Packaging the President in Taking Sides Even after the first page it was obvious that I would not be quoting her in my arguments She fails to take a real stand on the issue I didnt think it was possible but she actually wrote nine pages of nothing Her arguments were circular and mainly revolved around the presidential election of 1996 The decay of our election process is so far reaching that it is ridiculous to focus on one election When discussing the war on drugs you cant just focus on heroin there are two many things left out Mrs Jamison hurts her credibility by focusing on one election She comes off as ignorant and disgruntled She is supposed to be arguing that media coverage of elections has improved So why does her first sentence say that the 96 campaign was full of lies Is she saying its improved since 96 I dont know And there in lies the problem I never know what this lady is saying Her endless rambling leaves me dizzy and nauseous Does shy really think that campaign advertisers will police themselves Except for lawyers advertisers and politicians are the most unethical and sleazy creatures that ever slithered in front of a camera How can MrsJamison possible believe these people will reform and improve their campaigns on their own
