Where Is Mr. Smith?

December 23, 1990

Television is a big problem in American political apathy. We need to limit its use politically. There should be one week, and one week only, when candidates should be allowed on television. There should be a week of debates in which candidates' qualifications and backgrounds are discussed, when voters can see them over some time, not just in 30-second bites.

If we insist that politicians not have access to television to manipulate, it will be a different world.
