Exactly. Before CU it was bad enough already.The problem is much of the press are controlled by wealthy oligarchs and dark forces within government. It’s almost impossible to find the truth from the corporate media. Not only do they misrepresent, but they also purposely inflame and divide Americans.Of course they're unwilling. Who would vote to sift through tons of special interest misinformation every day? Our civic duty is to keep watch on government through leveraging the fourth estate. No corporate entity exists to present an unbiased presentation of currently important facts outside of the press. And of course the voters are largely unable. Corruption is generally about monopolizing every possible pulpit and spotlight to mislead everyone for private gain rather than offer any sort of public service. Wasting everyone's time and money.The problem with Citizens United is that it requires voters to be engaged and informed, to objectively examine the issue-based facts and documented information, and to reject fearmongering, lies, and partisan misinformation and conspiracy theories.
Something voters are clearly unwilling – or even unable – to do.
