Do you really like the media and politics?Politics

It’s survey time! But this one is a little different. We want to know a little bit more about you — and what gets you excited about politics, what you think about the media, and, most important, what you think about us.

Your answers are completely anonymous and the information you provide will be used exclusively to help make our site and content better.

But if you’re still a bit hesitant, when you complete the survey, you will receive a free, one month subscription to “Dead Reckoning”, our email newsletter. So, give us some feedback and we’ll spot you three bucks for your trouble.

    I stopped taking the survey when you asked for my household income.

      That question was asked only for demographic reasons and will not be tied back to the individual. It also is not required to complete the survey; like most of the questions, it can be skipped.

        that option was not explained. What is the true purpose of this poll in the first place? I’m guessing it is for your advertizers. My age, my sex, my income? I didn’t even see a question on my political leanings when I exited it. That is how you pitched it. Sorry. Not interested. I ignored this the first time when you posed it as “How much do you hate the media” but thought I’d give it a try the 2nd time you begged. Just exactly WHAT is it you want to know? And why you can’t you be honest about it? Talk about distrusting the media, J.R.

          It’s for us to better understand our market and whether or not we have a viable product that can actually be a business as opposed to a hobby. Thanks for your feedback. And, if you don’t trust us, you should find another place for your rantings that is even remotely as tolerant as we are.

    I did the survey but I’d also like to respond to the question posed in the title of the post:

    I actually hate politics. There is nothing that excites me about politics. I think the vast majority of politicians are power hungry rent-seeking slime balls. However, I feel compelled to follow politics, because both parties, to a greater or lesser degree, are trying to implement policies that have negative impacts on my pursuit of happiness. I just want to be left the hell alone, but instead I have to check everyday to find out where the next assault on my liberties is coming from. So that’s why I come here. Not because I love the horse race, not because I love Republicans, but because all these morons in Richmond and Washington are trying to ruin my life.
