The politics of hate

If I will remember anything from the Presidential Election 2008 down the road, it will be the level of hate, nastiness or whatever you want to call it coming from all sides this campaign season.

It has come from everywhere…the people, mainstream media, blogs, politicians, etc…

I wonder why that is…

Is it because we are a more “in your face” culture now?

Is it because much of the media represents something more like “Entertainment Tonight” than journalism?

Is it because of the internet and how it has given voice to millions of people?

Whatever the reasons, I think we have reached a new norm.
