If the print media wants to reverse its declining circulation numbers — and if the electronic media wants to stop its ratings from dropping, they might want to stop acting like a political party, do their research, and begin reporting more of what is really going on.
One small case in point – the debate over “gay” marriage. Unlike what you might learn from the press, there’s a whole lot going on beneath the radar screen of the voting public that depends on the mainstream media for its information. Thank God for the World Wide Web.

Our brothers and sisters in the LGBT community are fighting a battle that they’re close to winning, and we don’t want to do anything that would cause that fight to take a step backwards.” In short, the Unitarians are holding the polyamorists at arm’s length only until gay marriage has been safely legalized across the nation. At that point, the Unitarian campaign for state-recognized polyamorous marriage will almost certainly begin.
