Why does the media use slogans such as “You Decide” when they use the tiers to controll who people vote for?
Why is the media claiming that the people decide the election? They’ve already gone out and created “tiers” of candidates to make sure that the people choose a candidate who is “electable” (meaning acceptable to the media).
The “Top Tier” refers to warmongers that can get special interest money. They are Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Edwards, Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Mitt Romney, and Fred Thompson.
The “Second Tier” refers to warmongers who don’t get special interest money. These candidates may or may not have more support than the so-called “fringe candidates” who oppose the war (think of how Ron Paul has/had more support than Tommy Thompson, Jim Gilmore, Duncan Hunter, Joe Biden, Chris Dodd, and many other so-called “2nd tier” candidates and has Internet popularity on par with or greater than the “top tier”).
How has the media been allowed to get away with deciding the election for the people instead of obeying their slogans and letting the people decide?

It is very simple. The media does not decide the election. They use their option of free speech. The media just give their opinions. However it is still up to the people who by casting their votes will make the ultimate decision.
It is like Yahoo answers. We give our opinions by thumbs up, or thumbs down too. A person can get 15 thumbs down, but the one that chooses the Best answer, gets the 10 points. Got my drift.

First, for the same reason nike uses the slogan ‘ just do it ‘
Second, I have not seen these teirs you are reffering to…if it is a national media outlet you are reffering to it can only be fox news or msnbc as those are the only two media outlets I will not watch. I used to watch msnbc, but the coverage of virginia tech. seemed to me to be the same type of fan fare that was used in the manson family murders, helter skelter, youth today, ect….

Every news media has stopped reporting news about John Edwards, is this good news for Obama
I watched every TV news media, CNN, MSNBC, FOX, ABC, CBS, and NBC and they said NOTHING about John Edwards
the faster this story is forget about the better it is for Obama

Hillary should be mad!
but thats between them, I just support a democrat no matter who it is.

I am having a problem figuring out what it had to do with Obama in the 1st place.

The liberal media always protects democrats, If he was a Republican they would continue to hang him out to dry.

We should be hearing from Hillary on this one. Since John Edwards stayed in the campaign knowing that he was cheating and could not win. Edwards effectively stole the campaign from Clinton and gave it to Obama. I would also like to know how the campaign was allowed to bribe this woman with campaign money to keep quiet about all of this. There should be an investigation. Hillary if you are out there today, so something on this. You got screwed out of the nomination by Elizabeth and John Edwards.
