In recent remarks to an AIM conference, “ObamaNation: A Day of Truth,” former Democratic pollster and analyst Pat Caddell said, “I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy.” Caddell noted that while First Amendment protections were originally provided to the press so they would protect the liberty and freedom of the public from “organized governmental power,” they had clearly relinquished the role of impartial news providers.

1st point, there is no such things as a  "Free Democracy". Democracy is 2 wolves and a sheep deciding on what's for dinner. Free Republic, which we haven't been for a very long time. Other than that, look back in History. The media was bought up a long time ago, before I was born, and I'm old. Next, the public gets to pick all kinds of politicians, but not since 1804 have they (we) got to pick the president. Knowing that, why be ignorantly led into fussing over something we have no control in, let alone give money to either or any party.    

Blame the media.
