Do facts matter in politics? According to Professor Julian Zelizer of Princeton University, the answer is no. Brooke speaks with Zelizer about why not and why voters expect politicians to lie to them.
will no longer watch CNN as your bias shows so strongly. I used to think I could get an unbiased opinion, and no longer do.
I expect your ratings will fall as comments are so blatant against Romney.
When will Americans learn about their government? The State Department has The Office of Commercial and Business Affairs. Their job is to "play a major role in coordinating trade and INVESTMENT matters in support of U.S. firms doing business overseas." U.S. firms have been investing in China since the 80s. Brazil is next.
Facts really don't matter because much of the American voting public is to lazy to learn about anything. You at CNN didn't look into the person who presently resides in the White House. The U.S. Constitution states that the President must be a natural born citizen, meaning BOTH parents are to be U.S. citizens. By Mr. Obama's own admission his father was not a U.S. citizen. We have a usurper as President.
Manufacturing in the USA...it's not going to happen, no matter who you elect as President. I am 70. My dad worked in 2 factories and my mom in one. These factories dumped dyes into our rivers. Our government said stop and clean it up. Not us said the CEO's. We will lose money. The companies went overseas. Another company polluted with smoke. Stop said the U.S. The CEO's said we can't do that and away this company went to China. We in the U.S.A. want clean industry and CEO"s need to keep the cost down. That's far and few between. China is polluted, smokey and stained now. But what if we encouraged these companies to go to Mexico instead of China. It would keep jobs on our side of the world.
How can people still be undecided? Could it be that they've gotten tired trying to find actual truth in the process? "Unbiased surveys" ask leading questions. Entire media businesses just hawk ideology. When confronted with this much "stimulus," and when you can't tell if there's any truth in any of it, the brain just shuts down.
