Is the National Media Influencing the Election?

Is the National Media Influencing the Election?

I believe that the national media tries to influence our decisions. I say that because if you are not aware, some television stations are more liberal than others. For example MSNBC, CNBC, and CNN all show support for Hillary Clinton and really bash Donald Trump. Along with the bashing of  Mr. Trump, they are giving him free publicity, just for the completely horrible things he says. But a station like Fox News really glorifies Donald Trump. The poll results may also influence voters. People tend to want to vote for a winner.

Along with television, I believe social media and celebrities also have a strong influence. If a celebrity does not like someone and/or someone’s policies, they state their opinions. Some people will follow in their footsteps and vote for whomever the celebrity is for and not who they may think is the best candidate. Also, your family may have influence on your voting choices.

There are many factors that are both good and bad influences on you as a voter. Get informed and do not fall for the pressure. Go out and hit the ballots.
