"Politics today is increasingly becoming a game of mudslinging. Opponents exchange charges over corrupt or unethical behavior. The public grows increasingly cynical about the system and the elected leaders it produces.Will democracy, in its moment of greatest triumph, face its greatest threat from the instant-information age? An age when each publication or television station is so anxious to put the news out first that it leaves them little time for proper research or investigation into the credibility of those making the charges or the charges themselves."
