Especially when it comes to learning about who is running for governor in Florida in 2010. There is only one candidate that actually has a plan to reduce the state’s debt, recover the billions of dollars lost by the Sink-McCollum-Crist triumvirate, create the environment for permanent private-sector job creation in the state, and reduce the cost of living for Floridians, putting Floridians in a financial position to keep their homes out of foreclosure, all without raising their taxes or borrowing more money. But you will never know it from reading the ‘Election‘ pages of the Pensacola News Journal. That candidate is Dr. Farid A. Khavari.
That there is a political media filter at work, and being perpetrated on you, is obvious with a cursory glance at the 2010 Elections pages of the Pensacola News Journal.
I don’t know why this is. Only the News Journal knows for sure. Where Independent candidate Farid Khavari is concerned, I know it’s not because they are not aware of him or his platform. There was a time when the newspaper was motivated to inform the voting public of their options. Now our options get filtered for us. Or more correctly, on us. So the question becomes whether this filter is a result of an agenda or something else?
But more important than even that, the consequences of electing the wrong candidate will cost us all.
