9. The difference is we now have social media

The "intermediacy" of the media is dwindling. Folk are just waking up to the two-edged sword of email, youtube, twitter, etc., etc. There's more chatter, more nonsense (Drudge the Sludge) and thus more centrifugal civics. But it's also harder to control the discussion or spin. And when lies are told or Big Birds flipped off, the contrived drama - "mission accomplished" flashes across the screen, gets pundits in a sweat, and then becomes a laughingstock - a youtube rerun.
