focus on the resume
Dear Mainstream Media scum,
I don’t care what Candidate A does in the bedroom, bathroom or broom closet. I really don’t. Short of criminal actions, why is it noteworthy?
I don’t include those things on MY resume when I apply for a job, why should they? As long as my personal off duty time doesn’t include hobbies such as embezzlement, drunk driving, rape, etc I don’t think it is relevant.
When I write a resume I include job related skills, education and job performance history. That’s what I’ll be looking at when I get ready to vote. If I can’t find that information in your paper, broadcast, magazine, or web page then you just became irrelevant.
Thank you for wasting my time
P.S. by the way, if Candidate A DOES have hobbies such as embezzlement, drunk driving, rape, etc; I think that IS relevant.
Let’s not forget (or abandon) the media’s historical role in bringing accurate, relevant information to the people. This is a need that will be filled by someone. If your giant corporations can’t handle it we’ll do it ourselves.
