    I'd love it if someone asked an old newsman, by "old", I mean a newsman who worked in the time before News divisions were dissolved and the news went to the Entertainment divisions, ask an old newsman how the news was, and should be done.

    One day, a thing happens. The next 15 days, the thing is reported on with every minute detail and mostly speculation. Nothing new has happened. The thing becomes a category on a docket, alotted an amount of time to fill. (Or column space.) Other items are not reported in order to do the easy thing- reiterate the thing with a milligram of tangential information. Go to break.

    This practice allows the likes of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan to cultivate fame. This practice allows the consuming public to remain ignorant of issues that do, or will, impact them.

    Frenzy cum meme cum tired, bled out story. Until the next one comes along.

    I believe in democracy, civil liberties, and the rule of law. That makes me a liberal, and I’m proud of it. - Paul Krugman

      I think we have come to live in interesting times.

      We should attack China for wishing them upon us......

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
