Submission + - Why Do We Let the Media Determine our Candidates?

Paladin144 writes: "I've written an article about the mainstream media's tendency to determine the course of our presidential elections by giving favorable coverage to certain "approved" candidates while denying coverage or recognition to other candidates. A perfect example is the recent censorship of Ron Paul and Mike Gravel's respective campaigns in the media while they are exploding in popularity across the web. Will the power the internet provides everyday users revolutionize our electoral system or will corporate interest find a way to limit the damage to their control grid?"
