Thank you for the ping Normie :)
Now I know where your colorful posts come from ;9 I can’t even type a paragraph to express my opinions without it coming unbolted :p
About the subject... more and more is slipping through the cracks... I am just waiting for the waterfall to drown us all.
Thanks for the ping, Norm. I can’t agree more about the fallen state of journalism — or should I say, state-sponsored propaganda?
I believe that’s one of the chief reasons that the media has lost so much ground with the American public, and why online news sources, blogs, and forums like this one, have grown in readership and influence. People are just sick of having a bunch of lies, misinformation, and downright stupidity crammed down their necks.
Real journalism these days, is like a cool stream of water in the desert. You can’t keep people away from it.
Thanks, Norm. That’s how I learned it too.
I liked what you said about unnamed sources. Articles with those are not worthy of print, and editors should know better. Entirely too much of that today.
We have given the press a trust which they have not deserved nor maintained. When the history of our time is written, it will be a puzzlement to future Americans how we were so ill-served by a media we put so much trust in.
