Blog 5: Political Blogs

After looking at many different blogs with many styles and points of view I had a tough time deciding which one was something I really liked and could relate to.  I really couldn’t relate well with GOP blogs so that was out.  I did not like just getting the one sided views of the liberal blogs either.  I feel as though in today’s world stories about politics and current events are taken way to serious and sometimes a humorous spin on things need to be taken to make issues and problems in today’s world a little more light hearted.

In searching for a humorous political blog that I thought was professionally done and fairly balanced I found this. I have always been a fan of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert for as long as I can remember.  Even though they bring humor to today’s news and issues they are extremely knowledgable and up to date on the problems going on in the world.  Indecision Forever is a very humorous but serious blog that takes a light hearted approach to politics which is something that I enjoy.  I think having a little bit of humor in your news while still getting the main ideas and important pieces of the story is vital.  I mean what would politics be anyways without the likes of Stewart and Colbert? I think many young people today would claim it as boring and not cool to pay attention to.  With this blog and contributions from Stewart and Colbert, politics can be considered entertaining and exciting to pay attention to and that is something I know my generation looks for in getting their news.

    Is there some news that just can’t be made exciting or entertaining? Do you think young people end up missing this news by always looking to be entertained? Could this be problematic for young people or for democracy?
