Fuck the News Media

I was talking to Bartcop about the debate as to if blogs like mine are more accurate that the news media – and clearly I get it right more often than they do. And that’s not hard. I made the point that if I had a blank page I could win that battle.

Now they are talking about the next first lady telling some right wing rag to “Shove it” and it has already gotten more coverage that Vice President Dick Cheney telling a fellow senator to “Get Fucked”. Lets see if the news media at the Republican convertion in their coverage runs a grawl at the bottom referring to Cheney’s remark to get fucked. But you won’t see anything like that happen.

Some of the media be more fucked-up than others. Take TV for example. C-SPAN tops my watchability list, followed by BBC, followed by MSNBC and CNN, followed by Neo Nazis on Public Access channel 987 and the like, and coming in dead last is Fox News.

But, seriously, the bottom line is to diversify. Don’t eat all sugar or all shit, get some of both and all the gray areas in between. Read more. Feed your mind. Try to find access to international media. Try at least 5 new Blogs a week. Don’t accept other people’s ideas as your own without challenging them. Think.

I myself don’t watch the news on TV anymore, unless it’s local news. So much on the national and international news is so skewed, you can’t beleive what you hear anymore. I read papers from around the country and world and take it from there. I whole heartedly agree with you Alex, knowledge is power. So for those of you who just listen to Fox, Rush, Hannity and all the other handjobs: Try other things. You might learn something…

The news sucks, it’s so negative most of the time!
