The Media Trying to Destroy America

Steve Kroft's interview with President Obama on 60 Minutes this week displayed the media's absolute longing for war.
Make no mistake about it, the news media love wars. And it isn't just Kroft being a sock puppet for Lara Logan, no, wars are good good business for television. There's little better for ratings and ad revenue than pictures of American kids coming home in boxes (failing that, some bomber runs on cities will have to do).

The palpable lust and eagerness Kroft displayed for the US getting into a hot war with Russia over Syria was pretty remarkable. Like a 5th-grader trying to stir up a fight on a playground he told Obama that Putin was "challenging" his leadership. Whatever that means.
The news media is extraordinarily dangerous. They have no concern at all for American lives, or the lives of countless foreign civilians. The more who die, the better the media's business is. So they beat the drums for endless war.

October 1, 2015. We're way out from the election -- 13 months. And predictions are notoriously squirrely this far out. That said:
My prediction for the Democratic ticket is Hillary Clinton/Bernie Sanders 2016 will win the next Presidential election.
