I do not know why this morning my thoughts are running this way .But I was thinking of all the years I’ve been on this earth (76yrs). I never saw the people of this country so bitter over all kinds of issues. But I do know about when it started was when Murdoch's first permanent foray into TV in the USA, where he created Fox Broadcasting Company in 1986.Murdock found out from his father what sells News Papers and he rolled this type of journalism over in to TV.The way they do it is take an issue that every one is compassionate about.,sensationalize it ,they then manufacture all kinds of  issues around the issue that they are promoting to create controversy(hate,fear, any thing that will cause dissention..Remember Murdock is an Australian not an American whose sole purpose is to make MONEY
