The Love Story of Political Parties and Their Inseparable Ideals
Lexie Ernst

Lexie you bring up some great points. But I think you down play the media’s role in perpetuating the two party system. What gets more ratings? Opposing candidates agreeing on issues or an email **SCANDAL** and handing nuke codes to a ill-tempered individual? Now I realize that the two parties involved have grown so powerful that it is nearly impossible for a third party to win. However, the media plays a huge role in shaping citizens views. Instead of educating the voters on the issues that each side stands for, we are forced to watch a panel discuss candidates mannerisms and potential health issues. If they did chose to stick to issues maybe a lot more people would see that they cannot identify with just one parties issues and there would be more of a demand for a third and fourth party to rise! Yet, this is just a pipe dream due to ratings hungry networks.

News is meant to inform not entertain, the line has become too blurred!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
