Computer and internet technology has changed how information is distributed to the masses. Radio or television have reported happenings of the world for over 100 years and newspapers have been in existence for centuries. But, politics has a devious way of influencing what is reported and how.
The age of self-discovery was made possible with the broad reach of the internet, exposing some of the important information that some media decides is not worthy for reporting. This gives every individual the power to find both sides of a controversial subject instead of being tied to the filtered facts of the many biased reporters trying to exclaim themselves as journalists. It is easy to evaluate each media company by listening to its daily reports on political matters. Some definitely lean one way or the other as far as political spectrums are concerned.
Knowing who is representing you from the state in which you reside is an important step in helping to mold the type government you deem better serves the public. In campaigns past, it is obvious that politicians have a natural knack for stretching or blatantly misusing the truth. This makes it the responsibility of voters to not rely on the single dissertation that proclaims no objectivity to an issue. Getting all the facts and opinions really helps in deciding how you think about anything, and politics is one of the most important parts your life. It genuinely effects how you live, and you have the right and ability to change it.
