[Bumped] "The media is a like any other group of people. Their universe is all that matters."

"We make jokes about the media that live in New York and Washington and would need a visa to actually get into Oklahoma and would need a map to show them where it is. You know, life outside of their universe insignificant and doesn't matter." -- Limbaugh

Your Say

Too true. The old media denigrates and destroys

Have you ever looked at a map or graphic that shows where the majority of our soldiers/warriors were raised ?

Too True x2. When the federal building in OKC was bombed, a network news babe was overheard asking if there was an airport in Oklahoma, so she could fly in and cover the story.

Out here it's fly-OVER country, not fly-IN country. Maybe if we just stopped feeding them, they would go away. Further.

A young lady on an extended visit from New York City somehow fell in with our Sunday night friends pub gathering for a spell. After listening to her bitch for an hour about how backward and boring our Midwest burg was, I invited her to go the f*ck back to where she came from and leave us alone. We giggled ourselves silly after she stomped out.

That's ok, their universe doesn't matter to me.

Humans are clannish, tribalistic, and parochial. All is judged from those lenses. That isn't an accusation - that is a description.

To actually step back and just observe, and then report what was seen without commentary regarding worthiness, that is a rare thing indeed.

Try to turn off the inner commentary and just observe. That's dang near impossible.

It's not so much turning off the commentary as turning off the filter, and it is impossible. There is no such thing as objective journalism. It's an oxymoron. Some might be more objective in a relative sense than pure propaganda, but nobody is doing or has ever done a true "step back and just observe". My county newspaper growing up had "Republican" right in the title. I remember a paper from another county called "The Unterrified Democrat". Nobody expected those editors to be "objective", but they did know what they were getting.

The biggest, easiest manipulation is Not-News. The News gets reported. The Not-News is ignored and buried.

Their universe is the tertiary Ring of Hell. What's important to them is that it is warm and has indirect lighting. After that, life is just a hoodie and a remote.

Anon, How I wish that were true. A lot of people listen to the messages from their universe for instructions about what to value and how to vote.

Having been involved in a few events that were reported by ink-stained wretches, I observed that the events, as described by them, were near unrecognizable to me. Be warned.

Ive been involved in a few news stories in the local paper and every single time they got at least one thing wrong - never a trivial thing, either.

Beau Site. Vous devriez penser plus sur les flux RSS comme une source de trafic. Ils m'apportent un beau morceau de trafic
