The Story: Christie once told a protester, “So, listen. You want to have a conversation later? I’m happy to have it later, buddy. But until that time, sit down and shut up!”
In Christie’s mind, his rhetorical style is worthy of an Oxford Union debate.
“This strain of libertarianism that’s going through [the political] parties right now and making big headlines I think is a very dangerous thought,” Christie told the press.

The Story: Do we need that shooter headline? The tragedy that sparks headlines? Is that why our entertainment is so violent - because we crave it? Do we want murder and mayhem to spark our news coverage and entertainment choices?
Dipak K. Gupta wrote, “It has been our experience that throughout history we have found comfort in the existence of an enemy…. When there has been one, we have felt united, bathed in the warm glow of camaraderie and fellowship; when there has been none, we have sought an enemy within our own ranks.” (“Path to Collective Madness, A Study in Social Order and Political Pathology,” 2001)

The Story: On paper, O’Malley looks like he would be the natural alternative for Democratic primary voters wary (or sick) of the scandal-plagued Clinton. The 52-year-old former two-term governor of Maryland offers an experienced, credible and somewhat younger option, especially those frustrated by Clinton’s scandals or the media’s assumption of her inevitability.
Yet Sanders, the senator in his seventies, has become the vogue choice for today’s anti-establishment Democrat.

The Story: the taxpayers who generally foot the bill for this small army of wealthy deadbeats, continue to pay an ever heavier price in taxation and job loss without raising much of a ruckus at the ballot box.

The Story: There are a multitude of options for consumption, depending on one’s particular taste. Consumers often use more than one source to get news, and develop preferences based on beliefs and approach to life. The leaders of the pack are the networks; Fox News, CNN and CNBC, followed by ABC, CBS, and NBC. Each network provides its own filter for its viewers, reporting on the news it wants, in the manner that fits its paradigm. The network decides what viewers learn about, what they ignore, and even explains how to think about events.
