This is important.
I could sum it up as “wait until the story is actually fully investigated before believing anything.”
I just can’t
A mass shooting on Mother’s Day. Absolutely terrible.
While Jason Collins is very brave, let’s remember 30 years ago the president of the US was openly homophobic.
Times are changing for the better.
‘Obamacare’ Poll Finds 42% of Americans Unaware It’s Law abcn.ws/12Y1XyG— ABC World News (@ABCWorldNews) April 30, 2013
The media is great at quoting polls but seems to take no responsibility for the fact they do nothing to educate the public.
Might be the funniest sentence I’ve ever read in a serious news story.
They say there will be no drop off is coverage.
When I look at how the news is actually covered and presented to the public, it’s really not surprising that everyone has no idea what the hell is going on.
CNN has literally every minute of everyday to put on thoughtful interesting programming that has the chance to inform the American people, same for MSNBC and FOX news. Instead they spend that time desperately trying to prove that they still get it. They are still the “first name in news” that somehow you didn’t just read the same headline on twitter. That somehow they are more valuable than an in depth article on the NY Times.
Yet in their sad desperation to stay relevant they aren’t the saddest part of the TV news business.
MSNBC and FOX don’t report the news from a certain viewpoint. That would be bad enough. They actively attempt to make their viewers fear and loathe the other side.
I don’t care if that’s what the populous might want and if it’s the ticket to short term ratings.
What I care about is living in a country where the citizens aren’t talked down too or worse lied to.
