Today in the world we have these intriguing stories: War in Iraq, Discussions of Genocide in Darfur Being held in Paris, Iran Trying to Slip Away From U.N. Sanctions, North Korea Preparing to Shut Down its Nuclear Reactor, “Chemical Ali” Sentenced to Death in Iraq, Tony Blair Maybe to Become Catholic and other goodies.
NBCs Today Show started with a California Brush Fire, A Bus Crash, A Murder in Ohio, and Problems with Aspirin. Before the first half hour was completed we had Pretty Blonde Woman (Princess Di and Paris Hilton) and a story on Beaches.
By eight a.m. I’d expect a story on Bar-B-Q, Good Make-Up and Expensive Women’s Shoes.
What is America thinking? Watch the NBC Today Show or anything else in the morning line-up and you’ll know.
The ceaseless, mindless prattle of the “networks” (NBC, ABC, and CBS) created the audience for the “Cable News” phenomena of CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC.
The “Main Stream Media” (The New York Times, The Washington Post, and etc.) created the “Blogger” phenomena.
The bottom line: there is enough news to go around for everyone.
“Now Public” is as important to its readers and participants as The Washington Times is to a certain political crowd in America!
