The effect of other countries influence in American elections is overblown and wouldn't take place if we could more firmly rely on domestic reporting agencies. We ourselves meddle in other countries elections. We've and they've been doing it for decades. The fact that our own so-called news agencies print half truths and are biased to the point of domestic propaganda would lead most intelligent Americans to prefer watchdogging our own news agencies more closely first. If Americans could rely more strongly on their content, then outside meddling would have little to no impact. News agencies like CNN, MCNBC, and Fox do not present a balanced agenda toward the news. And in fact other traditional news agencies such as NBC, CBS, and NBC are also slanted towards the left side of the aisle. Present the news fairly and unslanted and the American public will make the right decisions. Our government should encourage fair and balanced views from our news agencies. Legislate that.
