Communication Ethics: What is the likelyhood of news industry political promotion in Greensboro and Guilford County?

"We needed to have the press be our friend"

Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle

Did the founding fathers want the communications industry
to keep an eye on the government for the people,
or an eye on the people for the government?

"Wait a minute. Hold on a second. To be your friend?"

"That sounds naive."

Carl Cameron, Fox News

Is what you think others think,
what they may be thinking,
or what they and/or some others want you to think they’re thinking?

"Well, no...We wanted them to ask the questions we want to answer
so that they report the news the way we want it to be reported."

Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle

If they can get you asking the wrong questions,
they don't have to worry about answers.
