To the Editor:
Media has transformed completely, not just a subtle change either. There has been falsified reporting to further the interests of reactionaries. People are no longer giving the full story, they're trying to throw out certain key words to draw attention, compared to reporting what is right.
This leads to us having elections where candidates can run a full campaign without giving one policy speech. J.B. Pritzker has been trying to run off a riot ticket, a ticket that "protests" Donald Trump. No one knows any of his policies, regarding the governorship. J.B. doesn't get that Mike Madigan was here far before Donald Trump, Donald Trump hasn't had much of an impact on Illinois.
Widespread cronyism, a lack of term limits has lead us to our current state. The progressive movement can never succeed in a state where the wealthiest rule the state. Politicians tend to run for the title, instead of running for the best interests of the people.
This is why Southern Illinoisans need to stand up and ask for a change, try to make a difference, only us can make a difference. Because those upstate, they don't care about us.
