Too much time wasted on negative mediaSubmitted by beezle on Mon, 01/16/2012 - 11:32
Have you noticed how many comments there are about "negative" news stories (print/radio/tv) or personalities?
Why are we wasting our time with this? If you feel strongly that facts were left out or positions distorted, send a respectful email to the author or media outlet and move on. If you have taken some other more unique type of action, ok, let others know.
In the time it takes you to read a long chain of "outrage" and add your "me too!" post,
how many voters could you have phoned?
if you bank all those times over a week,
how many voters could you have canvassed in person?
The reality is all candidates get hit pieces and words twisted. It doesn't help to whine here about them as I can assure you more than enough of us have seen/heard the same thing before reading it here and likely already sent an email if it was appropriate (note: enough does not imply all) Far better to spend your limited time on doing something positive which has results than a negative which does not gain any votes for Ron Paul.
