The Media and Presidential Debates

I've voted against the Reagan Administration twice, and will do so again come Nov. 8. But, after watching Bush and Dukakis shamelessly pander to the sound bite-mad media for 90 minutes, I am left with just one hollow sentiment.

Democracy is dead. Long live "mediacracy."
