Term Limits for the Media

The airtight media blackout about third party candidates like Gary Johnson ensure that most Americans will only take seriously candidates like Obama and Romney who are Wall Street approved. Those who control corporate media have many agenda items, but genuinely informing you about what's really happening is not one of them.

Years ago, working for a pro-term limits group, I was asked by a reporter what was meant by a clumsily-worded statement in our press packet announcing that we “provide information about term limits for the media.”

The reporter was fixated on the phrase “term limits for the media” and, well, sorta panicked. Term limits are popular, after all. I jovially explained that “for” people laboring in the media we would “provide information” — that is, studies and press releases and backgrounders and stuff . . . about term limits for politicians.
