6. IMO the worst thing about this fiasco is where the money went--to media

whose "journalists" did not confront the LIES their ad departments were spreading for Romney. And, because the proportion of campaign spending by outside groups rather than political parties was threefold higher for Romney, the lies brought in top dollar rates. Media must give political parties their lowest ad rates.

From the OP quote: "... Nearly 40 percent of Team Romney’s spending came from super PACs and other unlimited outside money groups, compared with about 12 percent for Team Obama."
