Today we no longer have political ads that tell the truth about a candidate or the issues. We have negative ads that spin, distort and take words out of context.
We can complain about the news media. But Fox News, MSNBC, what's left of CNN and the others feast on dirty politics. They don't want their banquet to end.
It's up to us the public to clean things up. But first we have to change. The politicians are giving us exactly what we want.
If we really want more truth in politics, if we really want less negativity and fewer lies, we have to make it clear to the politicians that we no longer want to watch their grubby cage fight.
Until we do, we'll be fed the same old dirt.
