    Ain't that true. I'm with Verne and others though. I'd rather have plain old factual news, local or otherwise, than have the news reporters put everything through the filter of their employers' own personal political persuasions. It's even happened to our 'beloved' BBC here in the UK. Very sad.

    I also have a lawn. . Right now it's looking a bit soggy though. 18 degrees C. 'Feels Like' ... a shallow muddy swimming pool.

    This went out live AND was saved on You Tube by the news station, they must think it's really good.


    Skip ahead to 2:00, that's when the professional on the scene reporter does her spot.

    I much prefer to watch world news over local. That said I only watch news at work anyway because that's all we're allowed to watch other than the Weather Channel. Ugh.

    The perspectives of the various news outlets are dictated by their billionaire owners. The same principle extends to social media outlets.

    You get the information billionaires want you to have, through the lenses and frames they want to use to manipulate you to their advantage.

    Yeah thats why you’re supposed to use reason, logic, and critical thinking to determine for yourself what is true vs fake and to not be this:

    Great in principle. Critically fragile in practice.

    The power of mass media to manipulate even a sophisticated audience is apparent. The amount of money and technology being thrown at mass manipulation outstrips human ability to compensate by traditional means (e.g., common sense, critical thinking).
