I was having a discussion with an online buddy, and he raised a great point. In the days of 24 hour news cycles, we have become perfectly fine with sound bites. A few examples, recently a woman(Sherrod) was fired from the USDA for allegedly being racist. Politicians run their campaigns on sound bites, because not too many run solid campaigns with integrity still can't get past the notion that in order to win races you have to go negative.

It intrigues me to see how much this is a true statement. How can we fairly judge a situation for what it is if we only hear snippets of comments from people? Aren't people aware of the fact that PR reps, and image coaches purposely prod these folks up for images sake?
