balthan: AngryDragon: We are too busy being divided by gay marriage, the War on Drugs, gun control, abortion, or any number of emotionally charged issues that will NEVER be resolved and have NO bearing on 80% of the citizens in this country.

There's an entire political movement that's led by entertainers. They don't care about good governance or finding solutions, they stoke outrage for ratings. And they're apparently very good at their jobs.

Conflict drives storyline. Agreeing with something normally produces silence in groups. If that is the reasoning for the nutty things TV presenters say instead of them just being idiots, it offers some solace for humanity, not much.
