Why can’t North Carolina be less political now, and why is national and even international media reporting negative things on “My” state?

Why don’t things come to North Carolina anymore like Game Show-esque things, or why can’t local news stations in North Carolina stay out of the politics, and why can’t there be any news like Coca Cola or NASCAR anymore or report live from places like The Fresh Market anymore? Like remember 107.5 KZL and Murphy in the Morning? Or “Let’s go to the Emerald Point?” Or Fuddruckers or Rock-Ola Cafe? What is NC coming to? Also, remember silly commercials like “Soytheastern Furniture Warehouse and as always Thamk you!” was in North Carolina? (Pre-HB2?) Also, why can’t North Carolina stay out of politics, or hurricanes these days? Also, why did HB2 ruin the movie industry in NC? Why did Pat McCrory and Dan Bishop even pass the Bathroom Bill in 2016 in the first place? Also, remember when North Carolina has the occasional celebrity come to places like when Jessica Simpson came Cloverdale Kitchen in Winston-Salem, NC, or when the professional golfer John Daly was arrested in Winston-Salem? Or, remember when Michael Jordan had a Food Lion commercial? Why can’t North Carolina be more like that, anymore? Why can’t we just do away with our political problems in Raleigh, and move forward like we did in the past?

    North Carolina is a major battleground in the GOP's 'culture wars'. It's a purple state, part of the bridge between the industrial, liberal Northeast and the conservative, agricultural Southeast. So if the Repubs lose the South, NC will be the first domino to fall. So everyone on both sides are watching the state carefully and pouring a lot of money into political PR.

    North Carolina is a trash state. If the entire state disappeared tomorrow, no one would care or notice
