Analysis and Conclusion relative to theft:

The major TV media news providers are filling a large proportion of their legally controlled limited news time with a subject that does not address the concerns of Americans, as also reported. These major concerns of Americans are primarily rooted in areas pertaining to their own best interests.  It follows that the Main Stream TV News Media has a collective agenda other than providing news that Americans need and want to know. This hidden agenda remains hidden behind forced attention gathering (stealing) media  time that provides a lucrative industry similar to some entertainment enterprises that do require a physical or service product, education, or labor intensity. This presumes there is a problem that needs a solution. However this media coverage can be described as a condition that enhances ignorance and encourages energies away from the primary and productive news and communication in a society. This MOT Ballot weighs the theft of limited news and education time by the media in wasteful areas of importance to the national interest.
