I think you missed what I was saying, Ten-Ten.
You can have your core beliefs and opinions — that is something that you acquire over time. They aren’t always static, they adjust and morph over that same period of time.
What I was talking about was what and how information is divulged to us.
We are treated with stories about Aruba, Paris Hilton, Jon Benet Ramsey as if these are so rare in occurence that they warrant back-to-back live coverage for weeks. Meanwhile, we have important stories that go largely unreported or barely mentioned at all.
I see the same complaints about the “Left-biased media” here as I do about the “Right-biased media” on the left.
The interesting thing is that BOTH sides are complaining about the same media!
I would say our media is broken, but it isn’t. It just isn’t working for us. It has been hijacked by mega corporations who are only giving us what they want us to know.
If it were a food, it would be nothing but empty calories.
I learn from you, you occasionally learn something from me, we discuss and meet in the middle most of the time. That is what politikin’ is supposed to be about, not what I see coming out of D.C. and the national parties, of late. Maybe we should run the country for a while . . .
I am constantly learning, Wil. I know a lot of things, but not enough to say I know everything. I am even humble to admit that I can be wrong on occasion.
I don’t know if D.J. Allyn considers me to be a friend or not, but I most CERTAINLY consider HIM to be one of mine.
Sure we are, Wil. We have our agreements and disagreements from time to time, but who doesn’t? I would much rather have friends that I can disagree with than friends I agree with 100 percent.
It keeps things from getting boring.]]>
