In a day and age where there are over 100 channels (if you have cable), yet the Olympics is tape delayed, why do we, as a nation, need to be subjected to political national conventions on several channels at once live? Why do we need to be subjected to 6 nights of talking heads telling us what we already know about them? (3 nights for Republicans, 3 nights for Democrats)
On top of that, we will have live debates, political coverage on all news broadcasts, and an endless day and night of election coverage (which has states that are "called" for candidates right after the polls close and before even one vote is actually counted -- pretty miraculous if you ask me!). PLEASE can we find a way for those who do NOT want to hear about politics to be able to keep from being bombarded with it constantly?
