What do Structured Query Language, the Federal Reserve Bank, and the Holy Roman Empire have in common?

Quick idea: the differential between the rich and poor is what drives the increasing disparity between reality and the way the media portray reality.

An accurate portrayal of cultural reality in the media does not serve the interests of the rich. The rich have an interest in distorting reality to serve their purposes.

This interest only increases as the differential grows.

Number one priority for House Democrats should be elction reform.
Not defeated — disgusted

As for the results in my own district, I'm not merely disappointed; I'm disgusted. This isn't about party politics, or my team losing; this is about humancy decency, ethics and principles. The principles of a majority of Sixth district voters appear to be greed and racism. A candidate, no matter how personally disgusting or devoid of decency, no matter how base or illegal his tactics, merely needs to promise to lower taxes and keep the Mexicans out in order to win. This race was a good example of how people let their conscience be cowed and overrun by corporate, amoral propagandists who are out to make a buck at the expense of the voters. My district has elected a racist, corrupt sophist over an able, virtuous war hero, and I am ashamed of them.
