Local man injured...more news at 11

A new study shows that you are 8 times more likely to get news about "accidental injuries" from your local TV news channel than about local political campaigns.

The news channels will say its because injury stories (and snowstorms!!) get viewers while stories on political campaigns don't. It is true we do get the government we deserve. So, I'm promising to drastically cut back my local injury stories and focus only on politics from now until the election.
