More trivialization

Its election year. Both major party leaders have made their first pitches to the public, promising privatisation and austerity on one hand, and jobs and a fair go on the other. You'd expect then that our political media would be analysing these offers, and assessing the two parties' policy responses to the challenges that face our country (notably, as we've seen today, unemployment and a weak economy). Instead, they're asking which of the two is "hotter".

Can I have a real, grown-up media, please, rather than the back of superficial ADHD children we have at the moment?
